The book was published in 2008. It contains analytical part, which reviews the main problems related to the court practice with regard to the Access to Public Information Act during the last years. The analysis encompasses the development of both cases related to the exercise of the right of access to public information and to the implementation of the exemptions from the right of access to information. Summaries and twenty-seven decisions on 14 court cases in which AIP legal team has provided legal help, including court representation, were included as appendices to the book.
At the presentation of the volume 4 of the Access to Public Information Litigation in Bulgaria (2005-2008), the Chairman of the Supreme Administrative Court, Mr. Konstantin Penchev noted:
We may have the best laws, but we have to implement them, i.e. the society shall make the mechanism work. I would like to thank to the Access to Information Programme because theymade the court think over and apply the law. They made the court answer – sometimes correctly, sometimes not, but developing its practices – the questions set forth.
