State Audit Service ignores information request by Kropyvnytskyi journalist

18.03.2024, 13:56

The State Audit Service of Ukraine left without reply an information request emailed by journalist and Institute of Mass Information representative in the Kirovohrad oblast, Pavlo Lisnychenko, to its official inbox.

As Pavlo told the IMI, in the five days prescribed by the law he received neither a response nor a notification about the extension of the request consideration period.

"While collecting material for a journalistic article, I first contacted the auditors by phone. However, they refused to comment, so on March 5 I wrote an information request and emailed it to the State Audit Service. A PDF letter is sufficient for most information managers, but I also sent a signed and scanned copy just in case. It has already been nine business days, but I still haven't received a reply," the journalist commented.

Pavlo Lisnychenko is preparing a second request. If this one is also ignored, he will appeal to the Verkhovna Rada's Commissioner for Human Rights and, if necessary, sue.
