We have a deficit of accountability and a lack of transparency in Ireland. But it doesn’t have to stay that way. Our guest in the tortoise shack, principal at FP Logue Solicitors and specialist in technology, intellectual property, information law and commercial law, Fred Logue, knows all about trying to get to the facts.
Through his work as a solicitor, and with @RightToKnowIE, he has helped break down bureaucratic barriers to transparency and to shed some light on the aspects of the system that governs us.
From litigating against banks and vulture funds, to trying to find out what went on in emails that the Dept of Justice said didn’t exist, Fred and his colleagues are doing terrific work. Our FOI Hero, Ken Foxe told us that Fred was the “ultimate guru” on FOI and information access, we’d have to agree.
