Interesting read and it appears as if its point 26 and 27 that are being referred to in this instance.

26.
The Home Office has relied upon the exemption at section 27(1)(a) to withhold the documents numbered 1, 3, 4, and 6. As the Commissioner also already concluded that documents 1 and 3 are exempt from disclosure on the basis of sections 36(2)(b)(i) and (ii), he has only considered whether the documents numbered 4 and 6 are in fact exempt from disclosure on the basis of section 27(1)(a).
27.
This section states that:
‘Information is exempt information if its disclosure under this Act would, or would be likely to, prejudice-
(a)
relations between the United Kingdom and any other State’

Marxman - I can`t tell who made this request (the Complainant), can you? It`s obviously only just been received 12.6.12.

The article in the Daily Star states that the FOI request was made by the Daily Star Sunday. The description in the article of "secret files" is somewhat misleading. As far as I can see they requested copies of correspondence etc between the Met and the Home Office. There was a limited amount of "bits of paper" meeting the terms of the request only one of which has been released.

Just read through this again and what doesn't quite add up is that if these HO docs were secret then how did the Express become aware of their existence in the first place

They requested copies of any communications between the Met and The HO concerning the review and were told some documents existed but they couldn't have them. Judging by the timing I would hazard a guess that this was more to do with Leveson and the Cameron/NI influence and the paper trying to get a story. I wonder if Leveson has asked for copies.

Hi tanszi

I'm going to try to find that article where another former Portuguese police officer, said that the British Government intervened with this case. I'm sure it is in the PJ files.

I am sure too that this was mentioned by others about the Government
interference.
