Access to Information

The Freedom of Information Act gives members of the public a right of access to all information held by public authorities.

Madinatuna is committed to its aim of fostering a culture of openness, transparency and accountability in Government and strives to give members of the public a right of access to all information held by Madinatuna.


Madinatuna adopts a publication scheme that makes certain categories of information routinely available online.

Our aim is to publish as much information as possible on our website free of charge, but our publications list is not a definitive list of all the information on our website or all the information that Madinatuna holds.

If you wish to re-use or reproduce any publication listed in our publication scheme, you may be required to apply for a copyright license.
