"By the adoption of the Amendments to the Law on Free Access to Information of Public Importance, the Commissioner was allowed to open offices outside of his Head Office in Belgrade, so that all citizens of Serbia would have equal access to this institution. Today, we are opening Commissioner's second Regional Office in Niš," said Commissioner Milan Marinović at the official opening. He emphasized that until now the citizens of Belgrade were somewhat privileged in the possibility of exercising their rights under the jurisdiction of the Commissioner because they could personally more quickly and easily submit requests to the Commissioner and get information about their rights. With the opening of the office in Niš, the citizens of Niš will now have the same equal possibility.
The Commissioner expressed his special gratitude to the Mayor of the City of Niš because she recognized the significance of opening the Commissioner's office for all citizens of Niš, Citizens' Associations, Local Media, Public Authorities, and all Data Controllers in Niš and its vicinity. Furthermore, he also pointed out that the Commissioner was allocated extraordinary office space, and that all the responsible had done a great deal to ensure that it was perfectly tailored to its intended use.
The Commissioner for Information of Public Importance and Personal Data Protection, Milan Marinović, called on all citizens of Niš and its vicinity to ensure they make the most of the fact that from today there is a Commissioner's office in Niš.
The occasion of the ceremonial opening of the Commissioner's second Regional Office was attended by the Mayor of Niš, Dragana Sotirovski, along with the City Administration officials, the Niš Misdemeanor Appellate Court Head of the Department, and representatives of numerous media.
