Monthly FOI Report in Shanghai (April)

There are 493 requests received by Shanghai Governments in April 2007. 399 requests have been responded in this month. Of which, 282 were granted in full, accounting for 70.7%, while only 12 in part (3%). 105 (26.3%) were refused. Of these refusals, 37 were refused as the information requested are not held by the relative departments, 37 were refused as the information requested is not existed, and 18 was rejected as the information requested is unclear. The information requested by other 3 applicants did not fall into the scope of information defined in Shanghai FOI legislation. 5 requests fell into the stipulated six FOI exemptions. Exemptions of state secrets and deliberation were typically employed in this month. The rest (5) fell into “other reasons”, for example applicants’ withdrawal from their applications.
