52. The FOICA vs The RA Road Police


On May 22, 2015 the FOICA submitted a written information request to the RA Road Police asking to provide information on video devices and speedometers.

TP didn’t provide any answer  to FOICA’s request. On June 26, 2015 FOICA applied to the RA Administrative Court asking to recognize  the actions or idleness of the RA Road Police unlawful, since the body didn’t answer to the FOICA’s request during the timeframe defined by the law on “Freedom of Information”, as well as FOICA asked to oblige the RP  to provide within five-day period the information that FOICA asked on May 22, 2015 .

After this when FOICA had already applied to the court, RP had provided the answer of the request. Thus, FOICA withdrew the claim on obliging to provide information.

The first court session took place on September 15, 2015. Next court hearing took place on October 12. The court decided to end the preliminary court hearing, and the case went to trial phase. On December 22, 2015. the RA Administrative Court publicized its decision, according to which satisfied the FOICA's claim and recognized the inaction of RA Road Police's  as unlawful.

As a result of the court case FOICA applied to the RA Administrative Court once again for the compensation of demages caused by the unlawful inaction. On November 24, 2017 the RA Administrative Court obliged the RA Road Police to conpensate the expenses of FOICA by paying 50000 AMD.
