Discrimination Between Requesters

This map reflects the answers from the FOIAnet discussion list to a question from a freedom of information advocate from an environmental NGO. The question came as a result of an investigation into corrupt practices of government sponsored business operations.

The NGO was denied access to government information in part because they were an environmental organisation. This denial prompted the advocate to ask  for comparative information and opinions about whether this kind of argument for refusing access to information would be permissable under FOI regimes in other countries.
