I can confirm that the second case took place post 2010. Decisions to accede to Mutual Legal Assistance requests are taken on a case by case basis. Due to the potential to harm on-going criminal investigations or future prosecutions, and the confidentiality attached to mutual legal assistance, it would not be appropriate to share further information.
