The Ministry of Information on Tuesday concluded the final revision by key ministries of the draft Law on Access to Information, without making any major amendments. It will be submitted to the Council of Ministers to be rubber-stamped by the end of September or beginning of October.
Department of Information and Broadcasting director-general and Ministry of Information spokesman Phos Sovann told The Post on Wednesday that during the meeting of key ministries, led by Minister of Information Khieu Kanharith, the working group only corrected some wording in the draft law.
“We have concluded the final cleanup of the draft law. The major ministries involved in the law were selected to meet and clean up any areas that needed to be improved. We only made minor changes to the wording,” he said.
Sovann said the Ministry of Information would now organise another team to ensure it meets legal standards.
“I think that by the end of September, or early in October at the latest, we can send the draft law to the Council of Ministers,” he said.
