Appeal Granted in Case Involving Prince Charles

26 July 2013

Three British high court judges have allowed an appeal of a decision denying public access to letters from Prince Charles to government agencies.

The Guardian newspaper has been seeking the letters for eight years. In July, the British High Court refused to overturn a government decision to block the disclosure of Prince Charles’ correspondence. (See previous report.)

The UK Attorney General Dominic Grieve in October 2012 has vetoed the  release of 27 letters sent by Prince Charles to seven government departments. A FOI tribunal court had ruled that the letters were “advocacy correspondence” and should be disclosed to the requester, Guardian journalist Rob Evans. (See previous report.)
