Presentation of Report on Progress and Key Challenges relating to Access to Judicial Acts

The Public Defender spoke about the importance of access to public information in the process of integration with Europe during the presentation of a report on the progress and main challenges related to access to judicial acts.

According to Levan Ioseliani, despite this great importance, access to public information, in certain cases, still remains a challenge, which is proved by the number of applications received by the Public Defender.

On March 29, 2024, the Institute for Development of Freedom of Information (IDFI) presented a report on the progress and main challenges related to access to judicial acts in Georgia.

At the presentation, representatives of state agencies, local and international organizations and practicing lawyers discussed the legislative regulation of the accessibility of judicial acts, basic constitutional standards, accessibility of judicial acts through public information requests and the gaps identified in the direction of the implementation of legislative changes.

Giorgi Kldiashvili, Executive Director of IDFI, Otar Chakhunashvili, First Deputy Head of Personal Data Protection Service, and Corinne Rothblum, acting Deputy Director of the USAID/Caucasus Bureau for Democracy, Human Rights and Governance, also delivered speeches at the event.

The presentation was supported by the USAID Rule of Law Program.
