Case C-353/99 Hautala v Council [2001]

Facts

  • Hautala requested access to council documents
  • The request was refused

Issue

  • Could this refusal be reversed?

Decision

  • Yes

Reasoning

  • In the interests of good administration and transparency, restrictions on the right to information should be interpreted strictly to ensure the widest possible access to documents
  • Hautala’s request should be granted, with confidential information blanked out, as refusing access entirely would be disproportionate
