FOI Monthly Report in Shanghai (Feb.)

After a long-time waiting, the second FOI monthly report was published recently. There are 387 requests received by Shanghai Governments in February 2007. 330 requests have been responded in this month. Of which, 203 were granted in full, accounting for 61.5%, while only 16 in part (5%). 111 (33.5%) were refused. Of these refusals, 40 were refused as the information requested are not held by the relative departments, 50 were refused as the information requested is not existed and 14 was rejected as the information requested is unclear. The information requested by other 1 applicants did not fall into the scope of information defined in Shanghai FOI legislation. The rest (4) fell into the stipulated six FOI exemptions. Exemptions of state secrets, deliberation and other acts were typically employed in this month. "> " title="permanent link">#
