The FOCA is required to provide information in an open and transparent manner. Citizens are entitled to find out how taxpayers’ money is spent. The FOCA’s duty to provide information is only restricted if the security of the country could be at threat, or if the matter concerns ongoing legal proceedings.
It is the policy of the Communication section of the FOCA to answer questions from media representatives professionally and comprehensively, and as quickly as possible. Our personnel are at your disposal during normal office hours, or via our standby phone number at weekends. A great deal of background information and reports on current developments are available on the FOCA website, as well as on Facebook (under "Stay Safe") and Twitter (@bazlCH).
