Significant Differences in Caribbean RTI Rating Scores

There are significant discrepancies in protection for the right to information (RTI) in two countries in the Caribbean region. The RTI Rating found that the Cayman Islands’ Freedom of Information Law scored comparatively well, with 112 points out of a possible score of 150, which would be tied for 13th position globally compared to national laws. By contrast, the Bahamian Freedom of Information Bill scored just 88 points, resulting in a tie for 48th place.
