Right to Know panel discussion to take place
The Information Commissioner’s Office is to hold a public panel discussion tonight.
The event — I Want to Know! Embracing the Benefits of the Pati Act — will be held at Bermuda National Gallery.
It will include Gitanjali Gutierrez, the Information Commissioner, information officers and members of the public who have made Pati requests to “discuss the benefits of embracing public access to information and its importance for Bermuda”.
Ms Gutierrez said the event would provide a “great chance to listen to people who are using the Pati Act”.
She added: “We’ll be talking about why the right to know is important for our community and share our hopes for the future.”
The panel chat is part of the ICO’s week of events to coincide with International Right to Know Day on September 28.
The event runs from 6pm to 7.30pm. Light refreshments will be provided.
