Regents require secrecy from task force

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The University of Hawaii Board of Regents is being criticized for requiring an accountability task force of volunteers to sign a confidentiality agreement.

Hawaii News Now says the agreement threatens task force members with possible criminal or civil legal action if they divulge information from the work, deliberations or records of the group.

Democratic State Sen. Donna Mercado Kim says the move by the regents is another example of "cloaking themselves in secrecy."

The accountability panel is being charged with evaluating UH's operational and financial controls in the aftermath of a botched Stevie Wonder concert that was supposed to be a fundraiser.

The accountability group could make its first report to the regents by their next regularly scheduled meeting on Oct. 18.
