Cayman Islands Governor says “NO” to ICO FOI Tempura Decision – seeks Judicial Review

From the Governor’s Office

Operation Tempura – Response to Information Commissioner’s Freedom of Information Decision

“I have considered the Information Commissioner’s Ruling of 10 July which ordered the disclosure of a complaint made in relation to Operation Tempura and my predecessor’s response [1] to this.

There remain several allegations and cases related to Operation Tempura that are not concluded. I believe that release of the documents at this time could potentially prejudice the progress of these. I am also concerned that releasing the documents at this time could breach a court order, and is not in the public interest.

I have, therefore, sought leave for Judicial Review of the Information Commissioner’s decision.”

H Kilpatrick, CB

Governor of the Cayman Islands

[1] Governor Taylor’s “Written Response” to the original complaint was prepared on advice from Benjamin Aina QC.
