MMfD Comments:

As we covered the developments surrounding the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provincial cabinet’s approval of amendments in the Right to Information law, the RTI commission told us they had suggested amendments after 2017. However, previous commissioners said they had also proposed amendments before 2017. So we wrote to the commission to ask for drafts of amendments it had proposed before and after. However, we got a disappointing and obfuscating response from the commission. The cabinet-approved amendments are now in the open so we did not go into appeal.
