Journalist Gavin Sheridan forces NAMA into the High Court

RTE gave great coverage to the ‘good news’ that NAMA made an operating profit in 2010.

Unfortunately, the broadcaster seems to have no interest in covering the much more important story concerning the ongoing battle by journalist Gavin Sheridan in trying to extract information from NAMA.

Gavin spotted a chink in the almost impenetrable armour of NAMA’s secrecy laws when, instead of submitting a Freedom of Information request, he asked for information by way of an Environmental Information regulation request.

The Ombudsman and Information Commissioner, Emily O’Reilly ruled in favour of Gavin forcing NAMA to take the case to the High Court.
