Dear City of Edinburgh Council,

The certificate doesn't display the name of the PERSONS.

Q. How would one know if their name is on a petition if the list can't be displayed to that individual?

Q. Would the court be able to provide the petition for evidence?

It's clearly evident that these proceedings don't follow Due Process of Law nor the Act of Sederunt by which the bulk hearing order is granted under. As the Act of Sederunt has specific rules that protects a fair and regulated proceedings that not only protects the customer, but also Due Process of Law.

Yours faithfully,

tommy

"The full summary warrant petition itself cannot be provided as this contains multiple customer details". Did l just read that correctly? So in other words a single list with names is presented and used as "warrant". Doesn't sound like a lawful court process to me.
