Reply to "withholding vital information "from""

I think no.1 will be correct and the function of “from“ in ‘withholding something from someone’ is different from the ”from“ of following patterns – ‘stop, keep, prohibit ~ from ~ing’.

Hi, Deepcosmos—Yes, your interpretation is correct. Those two patterns have nothing to do with each other, syntactically or semantically.
