Interim Order on Appeal No 1901-05/21 Ambreen Kanwal Vs. Economic Affairs Division

While the Minister-in-Charge is required to record reasons for exempting requested information/records from disclosure, the following needs to be kept in mind while recording the reasons:
(a) If the requested information is disclosed, whether it will cause harm, or, will it be in the public interest, if citizens of Pakistan come to know as to which minister, or, relevant public functionaries endorsed the decision to sign up for the membership of OGP?
(b) If the requested information is disclosed, whether it will cause harm, or, will it be in the public interest, if citizens of Pakistan come to know as to which minister, or, relevant public functionaries opined that the membership of OGP is not in the best interest of Pakistan and on what grounds?
(c)If the requested information is disclosed, whether it will cause harm, or, will it be in the public interest, if citizens of Pakistan come to know as to what conditionalities were attached for the OGP membership?
Once the Minister-in-Charge has decided about the disclosure, or, otherwise of the requested information based on possible reasons for harm from disclosure outweighing public interest and vice versa, the Respondent will submit decision as well as the recorded reasons for the consideration/decision of this commission.
