Access to Information Programme

By decision of 17 April 2014, the Administrative Court Sofia – City repealed a silent refusal of the Mayor of Sofia Municipality to provide information to Svetla Vassileva (journalist at “Duma” newspaper) on the property transactions and deals carried out with a municipal property premise in the period 2009 – 2013.


The court held that a silent refusal under the APIA is illegal since the administrative body must issue a decision on the request and inform the requester of it.
