The complainant submitted a request to the Department for International Development (DFID) seeking information about the UK’s involvement in training the Libyan coastguard. DFID provided him with some of the information falling within the scope of his request but sought to withhold further information on the basis of sections 27(1)(a), (b), (c) and (d) (international relations) of FOIA. The Commissioner is satisfied that the withheld information is exempt from disclosure on the basis of these exemptions and that in all the circumstances of the case the public interest favours withholding the information.
