Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar

OPPOSITION Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar declared yesterday that there will be no support from the United National Congress (UNC) for the amendments to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) proposed by Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi.

Speaking to the Express by phone, Persad-Bissessar said the UNC does not accept these amendments which speak to a 45-day time-frame to provide information instead of 30. She said there is still the serious issue of the Attorney General being the final decision maker in the process and having that power in his hands which is not found anywhere else in the world.
