As a principal rule, all decisions taken by a Swedish public authority to deny access to an official document, in part or in full, can be appealed in court. However, special provisions apply for decisions taken by the Government, ministers and the Parliamentary Ombudsmen. Sweden is, therefore, lodging a reservation, in relation with Article 8, paragraph 1, of the Convention, on access to a review procedure before a court or another independent and impartial body established by law, as regards decisions taken by the Government, ministers and the Parliamentary Ombudsmen.
