I Watch takes legal action againt Administrative Court over misuse of power

In an unprecedented move, I Watch filed a lawsuit for misuse of power against the Administrative Court with this very same court.

The organisation decided to sue the court over “refusal to provide copies of annual reports from 2010 to 2014.”

“This would set a precedent in enforcing the right of access to information and make of the Administrative Court both a party to the case and a court,” the watchdog Monday indicated in a press release.

The Administrative Court is the competent authority that is able to provide copies of its annual reports, I Watch indicated. Article 87a does not run contrary to the provisions of the organic law n2016-22 dated March 24, 2016, on the right to access to information.

The Administrative Court demanded that the organisation submit its request to the Presidency of the Republic on the basis of Article 87a of the law on the Administrative Court which stipulates that ” the First President of the Administrative Court presents the President of the Republic at the beginning of each year with an annual general report.” I Watch called the court’s response “a misuse of power.”
