Abstract: By means of Legal Notice 156 of 2012 published in The Malta Government Gazette of 18 May 2012, the remaining provisions of the Freedom of Information Act, 2008, which were not yet enacted will be law from 1st September 2012 onwards. 39 provisions out of 48, the vast majority, will enter into force in a few days’ time. The 2008 enactment will no longer remain a dormant law. It will also empower the fourth estate to be more vigilant of Government’s actions especially when Government tries to hide embarrassing decisions from the public and the media. The culture of secrecy very much prevalent today and even after the entry into force of the Freedom of Information Act will, slowly but surely, start to be dismantled.
