La ley de transparencia tumba todas las peticiones sobre la fuga del Emérito

2021-02-08T11:00:45+01:00

El Confidencial | 07/02/2021 In Spanish- La marcha del rey emérito Juan Carlos I es un acontecimiento del que todavía se desconoce mucha información. Más allá de los detalles revelados en prensa y los dos comunicados publicados por la Casa Real, todavía quedan muchas preguntas por responder. Desde con qué fondos se sufragó el viaje del exmonarca a Emiratos Árabes hasta detalles clave como las reuniones que mantuvieron Moncloa y Zarzuela sobre el asunto. Este puzle solo podrá ser resuelto con transparencia y rendición de cuentas; pero desafortunadamente en este frente no hay avances porque, más allá de la normalizada opacidad institucional, la ley de transparencia está obstaculizando las peticiones de información.

NGOs urge the European Parliament to end secrecy in how fishing rules are enforced

2021-01-14T12:32:35+01:00

Brussels, 14 January 2021 - 72 civil society organisations from the EU and across the globe have called on Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) to end secrecy around how fishing activities are controlled and sanctioned in a crucial vote to be taken in the Fisheries Committee on 26 January 2021. In a letter sent to all MEPs, the signatories warn that the lack of transparency in the current implementation of the EU Fisheries Control Regulation means the law is in fact failing to prevent illegal fishing. This, in turn, is a major threat to the sustainability of marine resources,
