The Right to Information is a Fundamental Right!

The Right to Information is a Fundamental Right!

Freedom of Information of a citizen’s right to information, is a democratic right. As the saying goes “the control of information is the tool of the dictatorship.” Unfortunately, in Malaysia, despite calling itself a democratic nation, freedom of information as a legal provision is only offered in two states - Selangor and Penang. 

Recently, the folks at UNDI18, have launched a campaign focusing on the Right to Information. Charlene See, Programme Lead of UNDI18 joins us on the show to discuss.
