file a request or inquiry

in the context of art. 23 or the Colombian constitution. "Article 23. Everyone has the right to file requests in a respectful manner to the government related to issues of general or individual interest and to obtain a prompt resolution..." In some ways this is close the FOIA in the U.S. however the Colombian law goes beyond the U.S. FOIA... based on that: everyon has the right to inquire, everyone has the right to file a request... Buena suerte
