sweemeng n Round table of parliamentary openness 
Italy have open data since 2012. Have everything, Mp need education despite that. 
Data pushed are mostly documents, because that's what gov 
It is mostly driven by pmo. 
Ukraine pmo involve in deciding the data. Few. Who will use it, who will maintain, how to sustain. 
So who owns the data 
In Canada data is there, but nobody knows. They use ogp process. 
Parliament is by the people. Thus belongs to the people. 
Transparency movement seems as antagonistic against authority. Congress in US for example distrust public  too
Should national action plan for legislative openness  rely with government. 
Hackerlab Brazil, doesn't work, have lot of data, but not many people use it. 
Fairly normal for people not using legislative  data. And business exist to produce service for politicians. Thus have to do it anyway even if no user. 
It is about effective use. 
Nobody care about open data and parliamentary. It is about the issues 
And no connection between public conversation and parliament
It should be issue focus.

sweemeng n Panama papers 
Email hard to search therefore cross check with name db in batch 
Hard to find useful information many are meaningful 
Platform used is for secure access. 
Security is mostly on relationships. 
Indonesia have access to tax office cooperation. There is open data for court cases and crime. 
The team check with official source for validation for example company registry
