Procedures and fees to obtain birth certificate (acte de naissance)

Patrick made this Access to information request to Ministry of Justice

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Ministry of Justice should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

From: Patrick

Dear Ministry of Justice,

I would like to ask for the following information under Law no
04/2013 of 08/02/2013 relating to access to information.

I would like to get a birth certificate (acte de naissance not
attestation de naissance) but I couldn't get relevant information.
How can I get it? Where should I request it and how much is the fee
to pay?

Yours faithfully,
