Dear Sir or Madam,

You wrote to me on 21 Jan 2011 stating that;
'The deadline for your request is 14 February 2011. However, we will endeavour to respond sooner.'

The deadline is today and I have not had the information I requested nor have the CPS dealt with the request within the 20 working day limit.

Please release the requested information by return. The CPS have breached the FOIA in a number of ways by their failing in this matter. I will be making a complaint to the ICO concerning those breaches.

Dear Sir, Madam,

Your reply is very misleading and also it can clearly be seen that you have deliberately ignored my 14 point request as detailed, as above, in my 20th Jan 2011 reaquest was for following information;

1. Please supply all recorded information held by CPS containing any reference to, or otherwise relating to IRA or terrorist involvement in this case.

2. Please supply all recorded information held by DPP containing any reference to, or otherwise relating to IRA or terrorist involvement in this case.

3. Please give full details of every person who has worked on this case on behalf of the CPS since 17th June 1999.

4. Please give full details of every person who has worked on this case on behalf of the DPP since 17th June 1999.

5. Please supply all detail and information concerning DPP involvement in this case since 17th June 1999.

6. Please supply full details as to why the DPP became involved in this case.

7. Have Northumbria Police at anytime recommended charges against any person(s) involved in this case. If so, please supply all information.

8. Please give full details of all contact, including dates, between Northumbria Police and the CPS concerning this case. Please also supply name(s) of Police officers and CPS officers involved.

9. Please supply all recorded information held by DPP concerning contact between DPP and CPS regarding this case.

10. Please supply all recorded information held by DPP concerning contact between DPP and Northumbria Police regarding this case.

11. Please supply all recorded information held by the DPP, his office concerning all contact between DPP and the Northern Ireland office, including ministers and or Crown Servants regarding this case.

12. Please supply all recorded information held by the DPP, his office concerning all contact between DPP and the Home Office, including the Home Secretary, his/her office and or other Crown servants concerning this case.

13. Please supply all recorded information held by CPS concerning contact between them and the Northern Ireland Office, the Home Office, including Home Secretary, his/her office and or all/any contact between CPS and any other Crown servants concerning this case.

14. Please supply all recorded information held by CPS concerning all contact between them and the Security Service (Mi5), including details of all/any meetings held with them concerning this case.

It follows that the CPS have not dealt with my request correctly. Please can you now deal with my request point by point and more importantly, give full explanation as to how the CPS believe that exemption(s) apply to each of the 14 points and explain their reasons for withholding such information. It is clear to me that many, if not all of the 14 points are not related to the exemption(s) your relying upon, please explain point by point why you feel they are.

I say that the CPS are involved in a cover up when dealing with my, Martin McGartland, shooting case.
The CPS appear to have used a blanket exemption(s) and or they have not explained why they feel such exemption(s) are engaged or indeed apply to each of my above 14 points. It is very important that they do so. I am requesting the CPS's help and assistance under the FOIA concerning the above issues, my 20th Jan 2011 request.

I am also asking that the CPS give me further information concerning this matter as they are being evasive and have failed to deal with my request properly.

I say that the CPS are using such a strategy to cover up and suppress wrongdoing on their part when dealing with my 1999 case. The CPS have also covered up complaints I have made in which they did not properly investigate them and which they were whitwashed by Head of counter-terrorism, Sue Hemming (and others within the CPS).

Futhermore, I now have evidence that shows the Head of counter-terrorism, Sue Hemming (and others in the CPS) have deliberately lied to me as the victim in this case. Sue Hemming has also been evasive when dealing with me and made many misleading statements.

As above, when confronted with complaints. Sue Hemming, others at the CPS have whitwashed my complaints and she, CPS to this day refuse to answer my correspondence and or my questions concerning my 1999 case and their involvement in it.

I simply want answers from Head of counter-terrorism, Sue Hemming (and others in the CPS). I want the truth about my 1999 attempted murder. However, the trouble is I can't get to the truth when Head of counter-terrorism, Sue Hemming (and others in the CPS) when they continue with a cover up and when they continue to act in such an absolutely appalling and disgraceful manner.

You will see that the request has a great deal more to do with this request for information. I will also be repling on the following Police, PPS cover up concerning me, my cases; http://www.scribd.com/doc/48716043/ALSO-...

I hope you will now deal with this request properly and stop the cover up in this matter. I want the truth and as the victim in this case I want answers to questions.

I will for information purposes, email a copy of this reply to Sue Hemming.

Yours sincerely,

Martin McGartland

Dear Freedom of Information Unit,

Please can you explain why it has taken you so long to reply to my correspondence.

I wrote to you on the 18th Feb 2011 and have now only had your reply dated 7th March 2011. The CPS are doing everything possible to further delay this matter.

You will also be aware I requested further information. However, you have simply ignored same. If you have taken it upon yourself to deal with this as an 'Internal Review' should you not have done so form the date of my last correspondence, that of 18th Feb 2011?

I look forward to your reply concerning above.

Yours sincerely,

Martin McGartland

I sympathise with your battle against the CPS they are above the LAW. We have been fighting years on the case against Dr Jane Barton who exceeds SHIPMAN'S Deaths with her overdosing of the elderly. All the evidence is there but they chose to manipulate and ignore it... and they can!

Good Luck
