The decision also serves to withhold from public view a 185-page review of that complaint, which cost Cayman Islands taxpayers more than $300,000 to produce and which was sought under a freedom of information request filed by a private UK citizen.
According to an 8 February decision by Justice Sir Alan Moses, Governor Duncan Taylor’s application for judicial review of an earlier order to release those records has been granted.
The full judicial review proceeding will now move ahead and Information Commissioner Jennifer Dilbert’s decision ordering the release of the records will be stayed until that review.
Governor Taylor has claimed the information commissioner’s decision to release certain records related to the Operation Tempura corruption probe was simply an unreasonable one.
The claim is made in an application seeking judicial review of Information Commissioner Dilbert’s November order that sought the release of former Senior Investigating Officer Martin Bridger’s complaint and the governor’s evaluation of the complaint.
It’s not known yet when the judicial review hearing would proceed or whether any such court hearing would be open to the public.
