On July 2, several civil society organizations published a public call requesting the National Agency for Solving Complaints (NASC) to abandon the practice of publishing its decisions without the name and surname of the three members of the complaint-solving panels, as the agency argued that such practice was meant to achieve the depersonalization of personal data. It was additionally requested of NASC to publish on its official website the order of the general director of NASC regarding the composition of the complaint-solving working panels.
Following this, in the July 8 announcement published on its official website - www.ansc.md - NASC stated that it took note of the call issued by the civil society organizations and that, beginning with that same day, the names of the decision-makers would be published on the Agency's website.
Concerning the second request of the representatives of the civil society, NASC has published on its official website, although after a long delay, the Order No. 05 of 12 February 2019 regarding the establishment of the complaint-solving panels for the period 12 February - 12 August 2019. On the same day, it published the new composition of the panels approved by Order no. 26 of July 8, 2019, regarding the composition of those panels for the period 08 July - 8 October 2019.
The signatories of the original call welcome NASC's openness and the immediate actions it took concerning the request of the civil society representatives which was meant to increase the transparency of its activity. However, in order to ensure true transparency as well as the possibility to monitor the decision-making process, including those complaint-solving decisions taken by NASC, and taking into consideration the time and resources necessary to be committed to such monitoring actions, the signatories call upon NASC to:
Association for Efficient and Responsible Governance (AGER)
The Center for Legal Resources in Moldova
Amnesty International Moldova
Transparency International Moldova
Institute for European Policies and Reforms (IPRE)
Center for Journalistic Investigations in Moldova
AO ADR "Habitat"
* The list is also open to being joined by other willing signatories
