Baker & McKenzie reports that in Argentina on December 5th and 6th, 2022, respectively, the resolutions 240/2022 and 244/2022 were each published in the Official Gazette. By means of these resolutions, the Access to Public Information Agency (AAIP) is contemplating the possibility of a new classification of offenses and consequences that are pertinent to behavior that is in violation of Law 25,326 and the rules that are associated with it. These offenses and consequences are relevant to the disclosure of public information that is in violation of Law 25,326.
The AAIP repealed provisions that regulated sanctions, replaced annexes that provided for the “classification of infringements” and “graduation of sanctions,” and repealed the maximum applicable sanction when a condemnatory administrative act includes more than one pecuniary sanction for an identical punishable action within each of the levels of the “graduation of sanctions.” The AAIP also repealed the maximum applicable sanction when a condemnatory administrative act includes more than one pecuniary sanction for In addition, the AAIP did away with the maximum sentence that may be applied in cases where a condemnatory administrative act included more than one monetary penalty.
