Commissioner withdraws NAMA Decision – The Story: The core issue is how to read the Access to Information on the Environment (AIE) Regulations 2007. And essentially that comes down to what “and includes” means in statutory interpretation. This question should be answered in the Anglo Irish Bank case, and any ruling that comes from it will affect NAMA (and indeed a range of other public authorities/bodies).
It is a relatively minor setback for greater transparency, but overall the fight continues both for more accountable institutions and for legal clarity.?
