Negating Access to Justice

We're waiting for Leo Tug to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Cabinet Office,

I sought to challenge a block on access to the Administrative Court RCJ so, questioned whether the court acknowledged the difficulties. It invited me to send papers to a judge for review. I did as per instruction but passage of papers was also blocked. Application to the Appeal Court was negated in similar way, despite invitation.

HMCTS Executive make clear that complaints procedures are exhausted; remedy does not exist there.

Given inconsistent directions received from the court and others, I question whether or not state agents (that's to say, outside regular court staff) are involved in some way. I understand such things may be challenged but know not where to direct my concerns?

Do you recognise such things occur? Would you reference any document dealing with the same. Otherwise, if you are not the correct office, where do I direct this query?

Yours faithfully,
Leo Tug

Dear Cabinet Office,

Thank you for your message. Clearly I need to clarify my request. Apologies for failing to do so.

I'm alleging agents of the state deny me access to justice. So, according to FOI Act: do you hold any document which identifies where one directs complaint about the same? (regular routes of recourse being unavailable).

I'm not asking you create anything: if no document exists, a confirmation of the same would suffice.

The following question is not an FOI query however, under the Act you are obliged to offer advice and assistance: are you prepared to receive a formal complaint?

Here's the original query: ..I sought to challenge a block on access to the Administrative Court RCJ so, questioned whether the court acknowledged the difficulties. [It did and] It invited me to send papers to a judge for review. I did as per instruction but passage of papers was also blocked. Application to the Appeal Court was negated in similar way, despite invitation.

HMCTS Executive make clear that complaints procedures are exhausted; remedy does not exist there.

Given inconsistent directions received from the court and others, I question whether or not state agents (that's to say, outside regular court staff) are involved in some way. I understand such things may be challenged but know not where to direct my concerns?

Do you recognise such things occur? Would you reference any document dealing with
the same. Otherwise, if you are not the correct office, where do I direct this query?..

Yours faithfully,

Leo Tug

Dear Cabinet Office FOI Team,

Thank you for your message.

I do not expect you to 'create new information in order to respond to a request'.

It sounds as if you hold no information relating to my query; you don't recognise or fail to recognise the difficulties identified in my earlier communication so, hold no document dealing with the same.

Under Section 16 of the Act which obliges you to offer advice and assistance whether or not a FOI query 'constitutes a valid request', would you kindly explain what action can be taken in order to challenge such an oversight or identify the office best placed to do so. This is a general question; not specific to my FOI query.

Yours sincerely,
Leo Tug
