NAMA loses appeal over requests for environmental information | Irish Examiner


NAMA loses appeal over requests for environmental information | Irish Examiner: “The High Court has today dismissed an appeal by the National Assets Management Agency against a ruling by the Commissioner for Environmental Information it is a public authority and therefore subject to freedom of information requests.

The Commissioner, Emily O’Reilly, ruled in September 2011 NAMA should be subject to information requests under environmental freedom of information on the basis of her finding it is a public authority within the meaning of provisions of the 2007 European (Access to Information on the Environment) Regulations.

NAMA appealed that decision to the High Court, and had argued claimed the Commissioner’s decision was wrong and argued its establishment under statute does not mean it is a public authority. “?

This deal does not include his perks and lottery pensions he is going to get as a Teacher and Government minster. What about the pensions of the gangsters in the Banks who brought this disaster on us. The X CEO’s, and the X self-serving Politicians who are now still sitting on these boards?

Nobody is quite clear where the impetus comes from, just as nobody is quite clear what it is that the answer might be.Much of the heat has come on the issues of contact hours and how much research (and of what kind) is of any “use”. Some consider that universities and indeed all third level is merely secondary shcool for adults, and that time spent in the classroom, sorry, lecture theatre, is the only thing that is worth rewarding. These usually also show breathtaking ignorance about the process of scientific investigation, with…
