Call for more access to govt records
(03-20 11:54)

The Office of the Ombudsman has called on the authorities to introduce legislation to better safeguard people's rights to access government records.
The Ombudsman, Alan Lai Nin, said the current guidelines -- the code on access to information -- were ambiguous and open to interpretation by various government departments.
He said this made it difficult for the public to obtain the information, which went against the government's original intention of improving transparency. --RTHK
