RTI Commission orders release of Draft Disability Law


In July 2017 ICES filed a right to information request with the Ministry of Social Empowerment seeking release of the most recent draft of the law on persons with disabilities.

The request was refused and ICES filed an appeal, first with the designated officer at the Ministry, and then with the RTI Commission.

on 27th February 2018, after a brief hearing, the RTI Commission ordered release of the draft law.
