Some interesting finding about classified information. By the way, I couldn't find any similar thing in Espionage Act of 1917 [the U.S.].
[Law] On Official Secrets [of Latvia]
Section 5. Information which May not be an Official Secret

It is prohibited to grant the status of an official secret and to restrict access to the following information:
1) information regarding natural disasters, natural or other calamities and the consequences thereof;
2) information regarding the environmental, health protection, educational and cultural state, as well as the demographic situation;
3) information regarding violations of human rights;
4) information regarding the crime rate and the statistics thereof, corruption cases, irregular conduct of officials;
5) information regarding the economic situation in the State, implementation of the budget, living standards of the population, as well as the salary scales, privileges, advantages and guarantees specified for officials and employees of State and local government institutions; and
