Information Commissioner panel named

A five person panel which will make recommendations to Governor Stuart Jack on the selection of the Cayman Islands’ first Information Commissioner has been appointed.

‘The panel is a group of highly capable individuals who I know will use both good judgement and fairness when making their decision,’ Governor Jack said. ‘The Freedom of Information Law and the Office of the Information Commissioner will deliver on the Cayman Islands Government’s commitment to be more open, transparent and accountable.’

Cayman’s first Freedom of Information Law, which provides open access to certain public records is due to take effect in January.

The five members of the panel are: Chairperson Jenny Manderson, Former Cable and Wireless CEO Tim Adam, Bodden Town MLA Osbourne Bodden, Human Rights Committee Chair Sara Collins, and West Bay MLA Captain Eugene Ebanks.
