SMS and WhatsApp messages can be subject to freedom of information requests, according to a ruling by a court in the Netherlands.

The Dutch government had claimed that electronic messages were not subject to such requests, but the Midden-Nederland court disagreed, writes Binnenlands Bestuur.

The court found that SMS and WhatsApp messages on a business phone can fall under the definition of a “written piece or other material containing information” in the law on public administration (Wet Openbaarheid van Bestuur – WOB).

The storage means is not relevant when it comes to determining whether a public administration document can be made public.
