Sit-in host of The Law, Joseph Ackah-Blay

The Law on JoyNews discussed the Right to Information (RTI) law and some challenges people face in accessing information under the regime.

Sit-in host, Joseph Ackah-Blay, and his panelists are looked at ways through which offenders can be prosecuted.

There have been concerns over the delay in accessing information using the RTI.

But Executive Secretary of the Right to Information (RTI) Commission, Yaw Sarpong Boateng, says contrary to public perceptions, there is no selective application of the RTI law.

According to him, the delays do not happen because of discrimination, but rather the Commission’s desire to address issues in a manner that is fair to all parties.

The RTI Commission was established to implement the RTI law and also resolve cases between citizens and public institutions, when the need arises.

Since its inception however, there have been a lot of complaints about how the Commission carries out its mandate; with some accusing it of being discriminatory.
