Martin McGartland

Dear Police Service of Northern Ireland,

It has been reported in the Belfast Telegraph that PSNI 'Murder squad detectives say they have made a DNA breakthrough in the hunt for the killers of an IRA gunman turned informer 15 years ago.', http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/l...

Under Freedom of Information 2000 I am requesting following;

1. When did the PSNI first become aware that they had 'a DNA profile from the crime scene', what year?

2. Regards 1 above, have the PSNI had any matches from DNA database, if so, how many?

3. Have the PSNI carried out familial DNA database searches ,genetic near matches to help solve the murder of Eamon Collins. If so, how many close matches have there been. If not, why not?

4, Have the RUC, PSNI deliberately concealed and or covered-up compelling evidence (including important DNA evidence in the Eamon Collins murder to protect PIRA terrorists and or informers involved?

I sincerely hope that the PSNI will deal correctly with this request. The PSNI, NIO, MI5 and HMG have been protecting PIRA terrorists during the past 15 years. They have also covered up PIRA murders and attempted murders.

Yours faithfully,

Martin McGartland

Dear Police Service of Northern Ireland,

Please explain what you mean by; "This request is on day 18 today and an internal review can not be conducted prior to a response being issued."

I am still expecting the PSNI to carryout an Internal Review into this request. The PSNI have continually delayed, ignored my requests. They have also breached the FOIA (broke the law) many times.

I await the outcome of the Internal Review.

Yours faithfully,

Martin McGartland

Dear 'David'

By law you, PSNI should have dealt with this within 20 working days. You have not given any type of explanation for the deliberate delay (which of course is unlawful under FOIA 2000).

Please reply to my request without further delay. I also expect you, PSNI to explain why you have not dealt with this request within the legal time limit. Why the PSNI are continuing to delay this request.

I also want you to accept this as a complaint. My complaint relates to your offices failure to deal with my request within 20 working days. The continued (I say deliberate)delaying in dealing with this request. The failure to supply any type of explanation as to why the request has been delayed and or extended.

You will be very well aware that ICO have made it known that they expect all FOI requests (including Internal reviews) to be dealt with within 20 working days.

I await to hear from you concerning this request and also my above complaint.

Yours faithfully,

Martin McGartland
