JAWS to host Freedom of Information Workshop

In an effort to promote freedom to information in Samoa, JAWS in association with Bill Southworth of Pactrain and hopefully NZAid will be hosting a four day workshop on Freedom of Information. The workshop, an initiative of Pactrain and the 2005 JAWS Board will assist in the drafting of a FOI Act to ensure that Journalists have easier access to information within Samoa.
The workshop will feature an understanding of the Code of Ethics, an awareness of our rights to information and basic writing and other useful skills. This will be the first workshop of its type to be hosted by JAWS and it certainly will not be the last.
