MEDIA STATEMENT – RIGHT TO INFORMATION COMMISSION OF SRI LANKA

8th October 2019

In recognition of the International Day for the Universal Access to Information day on 28 September 2019, the Right to Information Commission (RTI Commission) of Sri Lanka held a series of discussions with Public Authorities in Colombo and the Provinces on Sri Lanka’s Right to Information (RTI) Act & RTI Regime, culminating in workshops in Mahiyangana with the participation of Sri Lanka’s ‘Adivasi’ (Vedda) community leader Uruwarige Wannilaththo.The 'Adivasi' leader bestowed the good wishes of his community on the RTI Commission and expressed optimism that the RTI regime will continue to bring good benefits to the people, warning however that care must be taken not allow the RTI Act to be used for personal grievances.
