The UK Home Office and Crown Dependencies have been told they cannot appeal a ruling to make public communications they had about Syrian refugees, an advocacy group says.
Former Guernsey politician and self-styled transparency campaigner Tony Webber was working for the government correspondence between the UK, Jersey, Guernsey, and the Isle of Man on the resettling of Syrian refugees to be made public.
Director of the Campaign for Freedom of Information advocacy group Maurice Frankel said Mr Webber's claim had succeeded.
Mr Webber called the ruling a "victory for open and transparent government".
Guernsey's most senior politician, Deputy Gavin St Pier, had previously warned that releasing the documents would have "severe repercussions" for inter-government dialogue.
