Mrs Docherty (Account suspended)

Dear Sir or Madam,

In the wake of the people speaking out against the abuses of the
secret family courts and forced adoption of children to strangers,
instead of being retained within their real natural families. I
would like to know how your authority compares to others in
fulfilling your responsibilities to families & their children.

(a) How many individuals have been taken to court by your authority
in-order to gag them. To stop them from speaking out about the
injustices they have suffered at the hands of the council
children's social services and secret family courts. Provide all
records to-date that are held.

(b) How much did these gagging order injunctions cost the rate

(c) Who is responsible for actioning these enforcement orders by
the council, i.e. who signs the applications for court.

(d) How many parents /relatives/individuals have received further
sanctions for breaking these gagging orders.

(e) Are any of these decisions to gag/sanction taken by unelected
local authority officers responsible for children’s social care,
finance, legal or any other relevant department.

(f) If councillors make these decisions at which meeting(s) are
these discussed.

Yours faithfully,

Mrs Docherty

Cardiff Council

The reply to this FOI made me laugh out loud because as a parent who has had children forcefully removed with no justification and also a parent that does speak out against this council and their child removal methods (Crystal Ball) and the utter lies they write in reports for court Cardiff Council/Children's Services have on a number of occasions tried to get me gagged in court although anything I deem to be used to prevent me speaking the truth is actually an infringement of my rights. Cardiff Council, maybe you would like to reconsider this FOI and give truthful answers to the questions asked.
