Final Judgement by the High Court of Justice of Madrid
Armed Conflict in Yemen
The court upholds that the right to access information is not a fundamental right under the Spanish Constitution and can be limited on the basis of national security and commercial interests.nnn
In turn, the High Court dismisses the claim filed against the government’s decision denying access to the requested licensing information, upholding its confidential nature under the Official Secrets Act. It also finds that the right to access information is an ordinary right rather than a fundamental right that is subject to permissible limitation.
