FOI Monthly Report in Shanghai (June)

There are 640 requests received by Shanghai Governments in June 2007. 727 requests (including the number of requests received last month) have been responded in this month. Of which, 592 were granted in full, accounting for 81.4%, while only 27 in part (3.7%). 108 (14.9%) were refused. Of these refusals, 27 were refused as the information requested are not held by the relative departments, 40 were refused as the information requested is not existed, and 17 was rejected as the information requested is unclear. The information requested by one applicant did not fall into the scope of information defined in Shanghai FOI legislation. 18 requests fell into the stipulated six FOI exemptions. Exemptions of state secrets and deliberation were typically used in this month. The rest (5) fell into “other reasons”, for example withdrawal of requests.
