Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50189595
  • Date: 25 March 2010
  • Public Authority: Department for Employment and Learning
  • Summary: The complainant requested information relating to an investigation into an allegation of fraud at East Antrim Institute. The public authority disclosed some of the information requested but withheld other information citing sections 40 and 41 of the Act. As a result of the Commissioner’s intervention some information was disclosed to the complainant. The remaining withheld information was exempted under section 40 and 41 of the Act. The Commissioner finds that some of the information requested is the personal data of the complainant and as such is exempt by virtue of section 40(1) of the Act. The Commissioner considers that the public authority correctly applied section 40(2) of the Act to the remaining information it withheld in this case. However, the Commissioner recorded a number of procedural breaches in relation to the public authority’s handling of the request.
