Commissioner of The Metropolitan Police Service (Police and Criminal Justice): ICO 5 May 2015

The complainant has requested information connected to an incident involving a man who had been questioned over the alleged sexual assault of a 14 year old girl. The Metropolitan Police Service (the ‘MPS’) provided some information, advised that some information is not held and cited the exemptions at sections 30(1)(a)(i)(investigations and proceedings) and 40(2)(personal information) for the remainder. The Commissioner’s decision is that, where stated, the MPS does not hold the requested information. He also finds that section 30(1)(a)(i) is engaged and that the public interest lies in maintaining the exemption. No steps are required.
