Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50169737
  • Date: 24 June 2009
  • Public Authority: Metropolitan Police Service
  • Summary: The complainant requested information regarding the arrest of a named individual including their suspected involvement in a mugging. The Metropolitan Police Service refused to confirm or deny that this information was held, citing the exemptions at sections 40(5) (Personal Information), 30(3) (Investigations and Proceedings), 31(3) (Law Enforcement) and 44(2) (Prohibitions on Disclosure). While the Commissioner has found that the Metropolitan Police Service did not deal with the request for information in accordance with the procedural requirements in sections 10(1), 17(1) and 17(1)(b) of the Act, he finds that section 40(5)(b)(i) is engaged. He has not therefore gone on to consider the other exemptions cited. The Commissioner does not require any steps to be taken.
