Richard Taylor made this Freedom of Information request to Judicial Office for England and Wales

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was refused by Judicial Office for England and Wales.

Dear Judicial Office for England and Wales,

Could you please send me a copy of the judgment:
Citation Number: [2016] EWCA Crim 1083
No: 201600723 C2
Dated Thursday 7th July 2016

Even if Freedom of Information law does not require the Judicial Office to provide the requested judgement I would like the Judicial Office to consider my request anyway, as general correspondence, in reference to any other relevant access to information laws, policies and practices.

If the requested judgment is not to be provided I would appriciate any advice and assistance which may aid me in obtaining a copy.

Dear Aaron Twumasi, Data Access and Compliance Unit,

The case was heard in the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division); which is I expect what the "EWCA Crim" element of the standard citation I provided indicates.

The Court of Appeal Criminal Division is based at the Courts of Justice / Law Courts on the Strand in London.

This refusal is particularly interesting in the context of the Judicial Office's policy on proactive publication of judgements. It appears that generally only judgements judges choose to make public are openly published:
