Question Answer Comment
Publicly available No The original submission included three URL where data could be found. After reviewing them I came to the conclusion that none of them had all the required characteristics. The three URLs are as follows: - National Printing Service website - National Gazettes where laws, resolutions, decrees can be found. - Data from 2015 to 2017 only - No date of last amendment and no amendments - national assembly website - laws for 2009-2013 and 2016 only -no date of last amendment and no amendment -Official gazette website - gazettes contain laws, decrees, resolutions -only available from year 2000 and later - no date of last amendment and no amendments Since all three website contain laws passed only within very restricted time frames ( so not all laws are available) and because they are missing two required characteristics (no date of last amendment and no amendments), the original submission was rejected.

The original submission was rejected because 1) laws are only available for very specific time frames 2) for the laws that are available the date of last amendment and content of amendments is not available. The original submission had indicated the following for the data: - Characteristics: content, date of last amendment, amendments (the last two are actually missing - Free of charge: Yes -Up to date: Yes - Download in bulk: Yes (this should be a No) - Public domain: Yes (actually this should be a No) - Format: PDF only
