THE SUIT OF THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION CENTER VS ARMAVIR MUNICIPALITY SATISFIED

On March 21 the court of primary jurisdiction of Armavir region satisfied the
suit of the Freedom of Information Center versus Armavir Municipality. The court
obliged the city administration to provide the information requested by this
NGO. In the request filed in October 2005, the Freedom of Information Center
asked the Armavir municipality to give the copies of the decisions, adopted
by the Council of Aldermen in the second quarter of 2005 (April-June), including
the annual budget and the financial report on the execution of the budget in
the second quarter of 2005. Having received no response, Freedom of Information
Center appealed to the court in February 2006. The respondent did not attend
any of the three sessions (March 8, 15 and 21).
