Government launches new transparency website

THE Spanish government has launched a new transparency website to clamp down on corruption. 

Transparencia.gob.es reveals over 500,000 details relating to public spending, contracts and subsidies.

The €300,000 project represents the first major effort by the PP to clear up corruption and is part of a new Transparency Law that came into effect yesterday.

Some data will only be available upon request and a Council of Transparency has been set up to deal with any complaints or petitions.

Anyone can submit a request and a reply must be given within 30 days.

The new law has bumped Spain up to 64th place out of 100 countries with right-to-know laws, according to an annual Global Right to Information rating.
