All Comments:Uth Sophea firstname.lastname@example.org 1) For the 1st point, requesting to remove “intention to disturb—the public institutions may deny in supplying information in case it is learnt that the information demander intends to disturb”. The term “intention to disturb” could be used as an excuse to not provide the information. Another reason to remove this language is that it could be used to have applicant punished.
2) Requesting to reduce the timeframe from four months to one month only. In the law, it is stipulated that the applicant would receive the requested information in case the information has been recently provided by the public institution within four months.
