Dear HM Revenue and Customs,

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/br...

Reference is made within in the above referenced article to a loophole in the law. It is stated that the loophole in the law apparently affords immunity from prosecution to those who make declarations to HMRC, and that, therefore, HMRC said nothing to police about the crimes that Scot Young disclosed to them.

I would like to see a copy of that law and the specific text pertaining to that loophole. Would you please be so kind as to send me a copy of it, or a copy of the relevant section of the law?

Yours faithfully,

Jean James

Dear Ms James,

Freedom of Information Act 2000 Acknowledgement

Thank you for your communication of 11th January which has been passed to
HMRC's Freedom of Information Team.

We have allocated the above reference which you should quote if you need
to contact us.

The Team will arrange for a reply to be sent to you which will either
comply with HMRC's obligations under Freedom of Information Act or, if we
think it's an enquiry that we don't need to address under the terms of the
Act, let you know why. If it is the latter we will, if possible, pass it
on to a more appropriate part of the Department for answer.

Yours sincerely

HMRC Freedom of Information Act Team

Dear Ms James,

Dear [email address] on behalf of FOI Central Team,

I am requesting an internal review for the mishandling of my FOI request.

It is perfectly clear that I am NOT asking for information pertaining to an individual. I merely used an article to illustrate what it is I am looking for.

I VERY CLEARLY stated that I was looking for the section of the law or written policy that provides for immunity of prosecution under certain circumstances. If you have difficulty understanding this, would you please ask your supervisor to explain it to you.

If there is no section of the law or HMRC policy that provides for immunity from prosecution for informants or anyone else, will you please clearly say so.

I will not tolerate the deliberate and nonsensical type of information blocking that I just received. It indicates to me that HMRC must be hiding something. Is that the case, or will you please answer my perfectly legitimate question ON POLICE AND LAW.

Will you please please provide it without any further delay or foolishness.

Jean James

Dear [email address] on behalf of FOI Central Team,

The answer is as follows:

Section 71(4) c of the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 which allows the SFO to grant immunity from prosecution in circumstances where the SFO believes it is appropriate for the purposes of investigation or prosecution.

Yours sincerely,

Jean James

These awkward people simply do not want to admit that Scot Young was helping them under the following provision:

Section 71(4) c of the Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 which allows the SFO to grant immunity from prosecution in circumstances where the SFO believes it is appropriate for the purposes of investigation or prosecution.
