The best way to wake up on a Sunday morning is usually with a joke…
Since its establishment over a year ago, the Information Council (IC) has yet to receive a complaint from the public concerning access to information, according to an IC official…IC Vice President Mamoun Talhouni told The Jordan Times that the lack of registered complaints could be due insufficient knowledge of the councilâ€™s existence..[source]
Wow. I’m just glad they didn’t conclude that receiving no complaints meant that the council was a success.
But only now, a year after being established, will workshops be held in order to make media personnel aware of its existance. Can you believe that?
I can almost guarantee that a year ago, a journalist somewhere went digging for more information about the Information Council and was inevitably denied access to information.
In Jordan, everything is just raw data.
Or it’s classified.
