Jordi Solé Tura was member of the Council of Europe from 1993 to 2004. This agency in 2000 and 2002 said, advising on records and access to information, that records are an essential and irreplaceable part of the cultural heritage and that preserve the memory of the humanity for the future. It also states that a country is not fully democratic, if the documents for knowing its history in an objective way are not available to the citizens.
