The book presents important Supreme Administrative Court decisions on the Access to Public Information Act (APIA) from the end of 2002 until March 2004. The authors comment on problems related to the admissability of complaints against silent refusals, the definition of the term „public information,” the formulation of requests and the exeptions from the right of access to information. The practices of refusal on the grounds of state, administrative, and commercial secrets are analyzed, as well as the exemption related to documents with no significance of their own. Ten court decisions on FOI cases of public interest were published, which are important regarding the interpretation of certain provisions of the APIA.
