On 28 September, we marked the International Day for Universal Access to Information, a day that commemorates the need for greater information transparency and the the right to know.
In line with this year’s theme, a recent talkshow looked at how we could promote transparency in times of crisis, including by adopting federal-level right-to-information legislation.
On the panel were:
Wathshlah Naidu, Centre for Independent Journalism
Cynthia Gabriel, Centre to Combat Corruption and Cronyism (C4)
Nik Nazmi, Setiawangsa MP
Kuek Ser Kuang Keng, Data-N
Meena Rahman, Sahabat Alam Malaysia (SAM)
Moderator: Zan Azlee
This talkshow was jointly organised by CIJ and C4
