Article 3, Principle of transparency

Information prepared using state budget and all other information held by the State, regardless of its format, support, date of creation, origin, classification, or processing, is deemed as public, except whenever its publicity affects the due fulfilment of the duties of such bodies, the protection of personal data, the rights of individuals, the security of the State or the national interest, as established by law. The principle of transparency requires State instrumentality to make public information available to anyone who requires it, regardless of the use given to it, thus facilitating access to it, and ensuring its timely delivery and accessibility. Any institution that performs public service or administers state resources shall strictly comply with the principle of transparency.
