NAMA decision (update)

Update: The court has found in favour of the OCEI and dismissed NAMA’s appeal. We will publish a copy of the judgment as soon as we have it.

We are expecting a High Court ruling on the case of NAMA vs the Office of the Commissioner of the Environmental Information on the morning of February 27. We will update the blog once we know.

The case centres on the statutory interpretation of “and includes” in the definition of “public authority” in the Access to Information on the Environment Regulations (AIE) 2007. NAMA (and Anglo/IBRC) denied they were public authorities subject to the Regulations while the Commissioner ruled that they were. The case was then appealed to the High Court by NAMA and Anglo.

TheStory.ie first sent requests seeking information in February 2010.

    Brilliant news Gavin, Very well done. I think that the way that you presented the case to the Commissioner was a n important part of her desicion to take the case to the High Court.
