Disclosure Issues in Administrative Procedures


In this age of WikiLeaks, social networking and The Millennium Trilogy,the issue of disclosure is both front page news and bedside reading. At its best, disclosure can separate truth from

fiction; at its worst, disclosure can simply bury the truth with fiction, and kill more trees. The right to disclosure is a vital component of procedural fairness in administrative proceedings, and originates in the principle audi alteram partem. Procedural fairness requires that individuals, whose rights, privileges or interests are to be affected by an administrative decision-making

process, be provided with adequate information in order to know and respond to the case to be met.
