We are not required to comply with a request for information where it
would exceed the costs threshold to provide the information. In relation
to local authorities this limit is £450. We are entitled to use an
hourly rate of £25 per hour to determine whether or not this threshold

Marty McGartland is single-handedly responsible for stopping at least 45 IRA bomb and assassination plots: http://politics.caledonianmercury.com/20... he saved the lives of at least fifty people and he put his own life in danger while doing so. As a result, the IRA kidnapped Martin 8th August 1991, Marty escaped certain death by jumping from a third floor window. Marty was moved to the UK mainland by British Government, however, for the past 20 years he has been hounded by the State, the Police, MI5 and others, simply because he wrote a book about his experiences; http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fifty-Dead-Men-W...

Marty was also shot at least 6 times by the IRA in June 1999, the IRA only found Marty's safe house after MI5, Northumbria Police and the CPS took a flawed and malicious prosecution against him, he was acquitted. However, during the court case Northumbria Police read out Martin's real name and even his home address. Marty's 1991 kidnapping has also been covered up for the past 20 years, The State (including RUC and PSNI) suppressed compelling evidence, evidence that would have resulted in his kidnappers being charged, the men were not even arrested, they were protected by the State for 18 years (until Marty make another complaint); http://www.scribd.com/doc/55567240/Top-P...

Northumbria Police, the Home Office, MI5, NIO, IPCC and many other organs of the State continue to cover up Marty's 1999 attempted murder too; https://www.facebook.com/MartinMcGartland

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQhyxr0zd...

This is a total disgrace, it is also wrong, it is a State cover-up. Marty McGartland is in very poor health as a result, the State cover-up has and continues to exacerbate this. The protecting of IRA terrorists and the covering-up of both Marty’s kidnapping and his 1999 attempted murder by the above parties has now gone on for between 12 and 20 years. The above parties are hell bent on protecting IRA terrorists who were involved with both attacks. The above parties are also using every trick in the book, and many more, to cover up their own wrongdoing.
