Malicious Complaints

Ian White made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Work and Pensions

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

If an anonymous and or malicious claim is made against a person and that is by email, letter or telephone and is physically held in a data system, is the subject of that malicious complaint availble to the accused, using a Subject Access Request to gain copies of all you hold on that person?

If this is possible what are the contact details to request a SAR?

Furthermore would it not be in the depts. best financial interest to only deal with calls where the accuser gives their name and contact details and if this accusation does turn out to be malicious they could then be released thus saving tax payers money on vengeful reports as many would refrain from making these time wasting calls/ reports if they knew that they would be later identified if deemed malicious?

Yours faithfully,

I. White
