Madrid, 29 May 2013 – Today, members of the Access Info team have been invited by the Spanish political party Izquierda Plural to witness the third session of interventions on the future Spanish Transparency law. The debate in the Spanish Congress will deal with the range of amendments to the entire law, which are being introduced by the majority of the political parties, whilst civil society considers the law to still be insufficient and not up to scratch in meeting international standards.
Victoria Anderica, Campaign Coordinator at Access Info, reviews party by party the reasons behind the amendments to the Spanish Transparency law in an article published in the tuderechoasaber.es blog.
