The Central Information Commission says information is of significant importance to the public, particularly families who suffered in the Bhopal gas tragedy
New Delhi: The Central Information Commission (CIC) has directed the Ministry of External Affairs to disclose the communication between it and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on the extradition of former Union Carbide chief Warren Anderson in the Bhopal gas tragedy case.
The CIC issued the order, while overruling the ministry's objections that it could not give this information as the matter was sub-judice. The Commission said that this could not be sufficient ground to deny information to the public.
The Ministry had said that disclosure of correspondence between it and the CBI could adversely affect the Anderson extradition case. It also said that it had not spent any money in the case, PTI reports.
Information Commissioner Annapurna Dixit said that the matter was of significance to the general public and particularly to the families of the victims who have been awaiting justice for 26 years.
The CIC's direction was issued on an RTI application that sought these details. "It is also a matter of general awareness that the case related to the extradition of Mr Warren Anderson has been heard and judgment reserved by the Supreme Court recently. Therefore, no question of impeding the process of extradition arises," Ms Dixit said in the order.
"The Commission directs the public authority to provide all the information as available with them in their official records relating to the matter, and as sought by the complainant, by or within 10 June 2011," she said.
