HMCTS Complaint handling 19 March 17.pdf https://www.scribd.com/document/35261982...

Subject: Re: Complaint [CO/535/17]

Dear Mr Foster,

Thank you for your email. Yes I have your letter of 17 September and note that the Professional Standards Branch has considered the matter suitable for local resolution.

However, the force needs to be mindful about any alleged conduct that could arguably fall within the definition of an offence under s.26 of the Criminal Justice and Courts Act 2015 must be referred to the IPCC. Confirmation of this is in an IPCC Operational advice note (Mandatory referral criteria update, April 2017) on page 6. The failure to investigate criminal allegations set out in log 207 of 7 January 2017 patently concerned the improper exercise of police powers (an offence under s.26 of the 2015 Act).

Turning to the information specifically requested I shall begin by stating that my expectations on the outcome of this complaint are that the allegation is recorded as a crime and an investigation undertaken pursuing all reasonable lines of enquiry in accordance with the Criminal Procedure and Investigations Act 1996, codes / guidance prescribed under that Act and any other relevant legislation.

Regarding further comments, I think it is appropriate given that you have referred to the Judicial Ombudsman etc., that it is my opinion that the Ombudsman HMCTS/MoJ are more likely than not complicit. I would think it highly unlikely that the Justices' Clerk would make the decision herself to attempt to pull this off, and suggest either she has been pressured to do so by someone more senior or has known she could rely on being backed up by her employer. This has already been implied in an email (attached) to HMCTS' Head of Customer Investigations, Richard Redgrave, responding to his 6 April 2017 outcome of the investigation.

I have also compiled a document containing correspondence relevant to this complaint (chronologically) which includes the above mentioned 6 April outcome letter which supported the 22 April 2017 appeal against the outcome of local resolution. There is reference in the appeal to an email of 19 March 2017 in which Christine Wilson (head of specialist crime) was copied which has several documents attached to support my allegation of dishonesty within Grimsby Magistrates’ court. You may consider it helpful to obtain those attachments from Ms Wilson or alternatively I can forward them to you, however, there is a substantial amount to wade through. I have in any event attached one of those document which I consider may be most useful generally.

NORTH EAST LINCOLNSHIRE COUNCIL

You have asked whether I have lodged any complaint to North East Lincolnshire Council and if so any contact details. Before I can respond to this element I need clarification as to the relevance in order to make a reasonable assessment about who would be the most appropriate person for you to contact.

I assume that the council would be of assistance to confirm whether claims made by the Justices' Clerk regarding correspondence that was sent in the matter had been received (by the council) and/or to confirm whether correspondence claimed not to have been received by the council was true.

Yours faithfully,

Frank Clouseau

Boynton, Sian 8066, Humberside Police

Dear Mr Clouseau

Thank you for your recent request for information.

Section 8(1)(b) of the FOIA requires that a request for information must include the real name of the requester. If the requester; fails to provide a name; can’t be identified from the name provided (for example because they have only used their first name or initials); or, is using an obvious pseudonym, then the request won’t meet the requirements of section 8(1)(b) and will technically be invalid.

For a request to be valid, the requester must provide enough of their real name to give anyone reading that request a reasonable indication of their identity. This means that if the staff processing the request cannot identify the requester from the name provided, that request will be invalid.

Whilst it is not routine that we would seek identification, we have determined that on this occasion owing to similarities to previous requests we require your identification to proceed with this request.

Yours sincerely

S Boynton
Information Compliance Officer
Humberside Police

Dear Boynton, Sian 8066,

Will you please deal with this request. The public interest in disclosing the information far outweighs that of refusing to on the assumption that the name provided may be a pseudonym.

Yours sincerely,

Frank Clouseau
