ADDITION to Petition 80/2002: Freedom of Information failed in Germany

Sir,
 
I would like to add the following newest information to my petition 80/2002:
 
  • The ministers of the German federal cabinet failed to propose a law on Freedom of Information to parliament, because of objections of the bureaucracy. (Revolt of the red tapes: "Aufstand der Amtsschimmel" http://www.zeit.de/2002/15/Aufstand_der_Amtsschimmel
  • The coalition parties tried to propose their own law: http://www.heise.de/tp/deutsch/special/frei/12354/1.html but were stopped by the minister of economy Müller ("Bananenrepublik-Müller": http://www.heise.de/tp/deutsch/special/frei/12689/1.html). He was instructed by chancellor Schröder who obeyed the industry, which did not want freedom of information: http://www.spiegel.de/spiegel/0,1518,200757,00.html
  • According to the polls chancellor candidate Stoiber will win the elections. That would be a guarantee of no Freedom of Information in the following 4 years: http://home.broadpark.no/~wkeim/020508stoiber.htm with Germany as the only country in Europe without Freedom of Information.
  • I have done a investigation to find those who are responsible: http://home.broadpark.no/~wkeim/I_accuse.htm
  •  
    I appreciate that the European Parliament is processing my petition, which seems to be the only hope for Freedom of Information in Germany. 

    Sincerely,
     
    Walter Keim
