The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe appointed Senator Roberto Rampi as Rapporteur on the Right to Know

The Committee on Culture, Science, Education and Media of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe elected Senator Roberto Rampi, member of the Nonviolent, Transnational, Transparty Radical Party and member of the Global Committee for the Rule of law “Marco Pannella”, as general rapporteur on the Report on “Freedom of Media, Public Trust and the Right to Know”. 

In accepting the appointment, Roberto Rampi stated: “The right to know is a long-standing issue that goes to the heart of the meaning of our Parliamentary Assembly, because democracy is only possible if we have the tools to understand, the tools to know and to critically discern. In these most difficult times, we understand how the citizen’s right to know is essential also for the health of citizens, as understanding what is happening is crucial in determining our behaviour. Those who had the tools to understand had more chances than others of saving their lives.”
