Dear FOI,

Hi

As the primary funding organisation surely you have a responsibility to ensure that tax payers' monies are used in a way that is not morally repugnant. I have notified you that funding at NESBReC is being used in a way that cannot be considered anything other than abhorrent to any right thinking person but your response appears to be a little bewildering and goes something along the lines of "it's okay to fund this as long as we don't know what the money is being used for, or at least if there's any problems we'll just hide behind our policies and bury our heads in the sand for good measure". Do you really mean to tell me that you condone the exploitation of women in this manner? If you really want to show that you are a trustworthy and transparent organisation I suggest you look into this matter although I can assure you that Aberdeenshire Council have already accepted that the events in question have taken place and I have plenty of evidence to back this up. I would appreciate if you consider this response as a complaint to SNH and please copy it to the relevant department.

Many thanks

Iain

Yours sincerely,

Iain Lawrie

The following is an email sent to me. Seems that it's okay to view dirty pictures in Infrastructure Services then...

Hello Iain

Just to say, I spoke to xxxxx xxxxxxx about the issue you raised with me and referred specifically to the Council policies. As you indicated before, xxxxx gave assurances that this would not be happening again.

Thanks for your help on this.

here's another snippet requesting that I remove evidence of wrongdoing -

... go through the network drives to remove anything which may cause offence. Is this easy to do ? Is there still a trail ?

Thanks
