Prime Minister’s Security accused of breaching Information Act
Lawyer from the Kyiv Independent Media Trade Union Lyudmila Opryshko states that Prime Minister Azarov’s security guards are infringing the new version of the Law on Information dated 13 January 2011 by not admitting journalists.
LB.ua journalist Andriy Yanitsky alleges that Azarov’s guards on two occasions did not admit some journalists to the Prime Minister: on 21 June during the opening of the surgical unit of the Cancer Institute and on 22 June when flowers were laid at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
In her response, Lyudmila Opryshko points out that according to Article 3 of the Law on Information in the 13 January 2011 version, the main areas of government information policy are to ensure that everybody has access to information, and is offered equal opportunities for creating, gathering, storing, using, circulating, and protecting information.
