The Magic Power of the Lock


From the most secret state body, Yerevan municipality turned into an open, transparent and public one.

During November-December, 2005 students of Journalism Department of Yerevan State University sent information inquiries to Yerevan municipality. All the inquiries were answered. Four of them were responded within a period of 5 days.

During the same period FOICA sent 3 inquiries to Yerevan municipality. All of them were also answered within terms stated by the law “On freedom of information”.
It is worth reminding that on December 9, 2005 FOICA held its Annual Award Ceremony during which Yerevan municipality was awarded with a Lock prize as the most secret body in the field of information.

It looks like the lock has changed the working style of Yerevan municipality and the closest structure can now pretend for the “Golden key” award as the most law-abiding structure.
