The complainant has requested information related to the prosecution of a named defendant. The public authority withheld the information citing the exemptions in sections 30(1)(c), 32(1), 40(2) and 42(1) of the FOIA. The Commissioner’s decision is that the exemption in section 40(2) is engaged and that disclosure of the requested information would breach the Data protection Act 1998. He does not require the public authority to take any steps.
