SK - Court asks website to filter public procurement open data

(EDRI-gram)
Fair-Play Alliance (AFP), a Slovak non-governmental organization operating znasichdani.sk site, was required by a Bratislava District Court to take down from the website information related to certain public procurement contracts. The website was created in March 2011 in order to provide "a tool that would enable journalists and watchdogs to cross-check information about companies successful in public procurements with influential persons in these companies".
