Jun 11, 2021 | New

The Anti-Corruption Institute has appeared before representatives of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), who are currently in Colombia, to provide their testimony on the systematic violation of the right of access to information during the pandemic and the recent protests that have taken place in Colombia around the national strike.

They delivered over 30 documents which demonstrated the damage to integrity and quality of life due to a lack of transparency. The systemic violation, as presented by the Anti-Corruption Institute, corresponds to Article 13 of the American Convention on Human Rights, which establishes the right to seek, receive, and impart information.
