Dear Mr Williams,

 

Further to the Data Access Supervisor’s email of 07/02/19 and 22/02/19
acknowledging receipt of your requests for Merseyside Police to conduct an
internal review of your Freedom of Information, I confirm that I have
completed my review.

 

You requested: (summary) ‘Text messages sent from the Police Officer to
the victim, timestamp and cost of legal fees.’.

 

Decision :

I have decided to uphold the original decision.

 

Section 17, Freedom of Information Act, 2000, requires Merseyside Police,
when refusing to provide such information (because the information is
exempt) to provide you the applicant with a notice which:

(a) states that fact,

(b) specifies the exemption(s) in question and

(c) states (if that would not otherwise be apparent) why the exemption
applies.

 

Reason for decision :

 

As stated in original response table (see attached).

 

Complainant Rights:

Should you disagree with this decision you have a further right of appeal
to the Information Commissioner the contact details for whom are below.
