I feel that the named Office, being the 'Council' a Public Office of Local Government should be more transparent in matters and a FOI should not be required, and such information should be already be freely be published by such 'Council' a Public Office of Local Government.

In the days of mass theft and fraud, and identity theft and fraud, under the "Money Laundering Regulations 2007", any claims being made to pay should be scrutinised and checked for authenticity and authority and be true of Claims, as it is a criminal offense for someone to pay money to someone not owed it or pay money to someone that has no authority to collect such monies or authority to make such paperwork to state such. That is then leaving the payer to be partie to crime by collusion and conspiracy not known, which is a criminal offense.

As it seems Wigan Local Authority Council are using various names and brand names and headed paper for each area of trading this is giving confusion to the Public. Therefore that is the reason for this FOI request to bring more transparency to matters.

Yours faithfully,

Simon Deante

Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council

Wigan Evening Post (wigantoday.net) feel this is very much in the public interest, as they published a story very similar to this called "Council in Multiple identities Row"

I am also very interested in a response these extremely important questions, as I'm sure many in the Borough are too.

Dear Sir/Madam

I am writing to respond to your freedom of information request recently
received. This request has been handled under the Freedom of Information
Act 2000.

The response to your request is detailed below.

In accordance with Section 8(1)(b) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000
(FoIA), Wigan Council has decided to refuse your request as it has
reasonable grounds for believing that the name being used on the
application, Simon Deante, may not be your real name.

Though the FoIA is generally applicant and purpose blind, the legislation
allows authorities to take account of whether requests are vexatious,
repetitious and/or form part of an organised campaign. If pseudonyms are
used on sites such as 'what do they know.com' this could facilitate the
making of requests which might justify refusal, on one or more of the
above grounds.

In order to progress your request I shall require proof of your identity.
This may take the form of a photocopy of the relevant page of your
passport, or if you do not have a passport you may supply a recent copy of
a utility bill addressed to you at your home. To preserve your own
privacy, please do not send this information to us via the
whatdotheyknow.com web site.
 
The Information Commissioner has published guidance on this issue which is
available from the link below:

approach taken by the Council. His address is:

So Wigan Council (or whoever they are) are refusing to say who they are? This request should not have been refused. Either they're hiding something or they don't know.

It is obviously that the Council have much to hide.

This information I request is basic information that should be already present on the Councils website and available in leaflet form from the Council sites "About the Council".

We now need to get a Public signed Petition up from the Wigan people and publicly serve this petition of request to the Wigan "Council" with the media-press present.

Until they clarify who they are and what they trade under "brand names", the Money Laundry Regulations kick in as it is a Criminal Offense to pay money if you do not know who you are paying and that you come party to the crime as a "conspiracy to crime" with or without knowing.

As this is (or posing as) a "Council" it is Publicly accountable.

Wigan People can also copy this FOI and place it in their own name or the Wigan People can report a complaint of their own concern to the ICO.

I have copied the FoI today 26-04-15 and I will personally sort out the petition myself. Once I have shown my ID to the town hall, I will begin compiling a list of signatures and inform the local media of what I am doing and why.

I have contacted the ICO many times regarding Wigan Council, and should they circument my FoI, rest assured I will be in touch with the ICO again.

As it seems "A Ratchford" put in a duplicate FOI request after I did, the council still did not reply even after "A Ratchford" personally directly went to the Councils' offices to show the Council requested personal identification that indeed "A Ratchford" exists as they the Council requested I do the same. The case was then reported to the ICO who gave notice of FOI failure to the Council and to respond in full to the FOI within ten days. The Council then replied at the last moment. Of course answers to question were missed and blagged by the Council. For further information on this FOI please see "A Ratchford" duplicate FOI request.
It all proves the Council think they are beyond the law and that indeed the Council are running in private not public.
