I have received as a complainant a damning report into unlawful conduct and associated behaviour by the head poncho and colleagues of a Public Body authored by a Government department. The report which is very long outlines the unlawful behaviour which if avoided would have saved the public purse a five figure sum. The GD have placed a rider on the report stating that it cannot be shared with third parties. The PB covered up matters and then an associated public body did the same to protect the first PB. The second PB's department was placed into special measures around this time, but not because of the matters related to this report which was unknown at the time, but the GD stated they were not surprised.
The GD stated that both PB's acted in a similar vein to institutionally conceal matters and consistently breach legislation, in the belief that they had impunity.
The unlawful conduct by members of this public body has personally cost me a five figure sum. The report does not state that it is confidential, just that it must not be shared with third parties. I am pretty sure I must be able to share it with legal advisers.
I do feel that the GD are attempting to ensure a lid continues to be placed on the conduct of the PBs. My question is simple, can I lawfully share this report with other third parties or indeed into the public domain?
