Madrid, 17 March 2014 – Victoria Anderica from Access Info Europe participated yesterday in the television programme ‘El Objetivo’, in Spanish TV channel La Sexta, to talk about the lack of transparency surrounding migrant internment centres in Spain (Centros de Internamiento de Extranjeros, CIEs).

In Spain we haven’t been able to access information about the CIEs, and this makes it very difficult for civil society to work on this area,” said Victoria Anderica.

Campaign on the right to information about CIEs

Since 2013, Access Info Europe along with the Global Detention Project has been taking part in an initiative aiming to achieve greater transparency regarding immigrant retention.

As part of this project, a series of investigations have been carried out which include sending access to information requests to more than 30 governments worldwide.
