Operation Pelican

Kevin made this Freedom of Information request to Home Office

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Home Office,

Under the FOIA, the FCDO informed me that the Home Office was one of the key departments involved in Operation Pelican - the UK government effort to remove Julian Assange from the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

Please provide me with the following information:
1) How many Home Office officials officials were assigned to/working with Operation Pelican, and who was in charge?
2) What was Operation Pelican's budget per year from when it first began in June 2018, and how much did Operation Pelican spend since it first began?
3) Please provide me with all communications - via email, whatsapp, minuted meetings and phonecalls, text, ms teams, signal, or any other format - between Operation Pelican officials based in the Home Office and officials in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for the years 2018 and 2019.

Yours faithfully,
Kevin McEvoy

Dear FOI Requests,

Freedom of Information request reference: 65001

I should have been given the information months ago - and now you're telling me you've lost the request altogether. It's unacceptable and amounts to non-compliance with statutory requirements.

Yours sincerely,

Kevin

Dear Home Office,

Why have I still not received a response? This has been going on for months now. Please do an internal review since you are not complying with statutory requirements, and have refused to do so for months.

Yours faithfully,

Kevin
