Freedom of information, a citizen’s right to information, is a democratic right.
As the saying goes, “The control of information is the tool of the dictatorship.”
Unfortunately, in Malaysia, despite calling itself a democratic nation, freedom of information as a legal provision is offered in only two states – Selangor and Penang.
Recently, the folks at Undi18 launched a campaign focusing on the right to information. Charlene See, programme lead of Undi18, joins BFM to discuss.
