MOSCOW, August 20 - RAPSI. The Supreme Commercial Court has accepted another appeal by the information agency Prime which seeks to review, under supervisory procedure, the dismissal of its lawsuit to have over 14,000 Moscow government documents published, a court spokesperson told the Russian Legal Information agency (RAPSI/rapsinews.com).
On July 27 the court dropped the agency's request to review the case. An analysis of the previous court rulings has revealed that they are fully based on the Arbitration Procedure Code and therefore are not subject to reversal.
The plaintiff seeks to invalidate the government's decision to restrict access to information concerning city' executive authorities' operations and to classify 14,569 mayoral and government documents.
In its response to the complaint, the government said it provided the plaintiff with 40 requested regulations, and 176 subsequent regulations, while the "other regulations contain information constituting state secrets for official use only, personal data and other confidential information."
