Dear Judicial Conduct Investigations Office,

Please treat this communication as a request for an internal review of the decision not to disclose the requested information under your ref 200929007.

The grounds for complaint are that:

1. You have provided no evidence that either the complainant or the Recorder in question have been contacted for consent to disclose. I am aware that the complainant would not object.

2. Sections 139 (3) and (4) of the Constitutional Reform Act, viewed through the lens of a journalist not a lawyer, do not appear to be applicable in this case and unless either of the parties objects then the requested information should fall for disclosure.

Yours faithfully,

Neil Wilby
