Introduction

One of the chief weaknesses of this law is its poor recognition of the right to information, an omission which goes some way to explaining why, according to our information, the law has also been poorly implemented. The weak sanctions regime which fails to prescribe strong penalties for violating the right to information likely also contributes to this. Honduras' access framework is also problematic in that it contains several overly broad exceptions which are not governed by a public interest override, and that it also allows information to be exempted by other legislation.
