Crown Prosecution Service (Police and Criminal Justice): ICO 31 Aug 2016

ICO The complainant requested information relating to the costs of various court cases. The Crown Prosecution Service explained that it did not hold some of the requested information and in relation to four court cases, was neither confirming nor denying whether it held the requested information by virtue of section 40(5) Personal information) of the FOIA. The Commissioner’s decision is that the Crown Prosecution Service has applied section 40(5) of the FOIA appropriately. He also considers that, on the balance of probabilities, the Crown Prosecution Service does not hold any further information and therefore has not breached section 1 of the FOIA. The Commissioner does not require the Crown Prosecution Service to take any further steps as a result of this decision.
FOI 1: Not upheld FOI 40(5): Not upheld
