Access To Information
The Access To Information (ATI) Act gives the public legal right to see official documents held by Government Bodies. You may also ask for personal information to be changed if it is incomplete, misleading, out of date, or incorrect.
There are however, documents which are exempted from disclosure under the Act. These are documents which it is believed should not be disclosed in order to protect essential public interests or the private/business affairs of others.
Some exempt documents are however subject to public interest tests. Release of exempt documents may also be achieved through an Order of the Minister responsible for information of after the expiration of 20 years after their creation, or such shorter or longer period as the Minister may specify by Order.
