Public Inquiry Request: Miscarriage of Justice, Public Family Law

Liz R made this Freedom of Information request to Supreme Court of the United Kingdom This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

Supreme Court of the United Kingdom did not have the information requested.

Dear Supreme Court of the United Kingdom,

I have tried and exhausted all and various/all known government legal departments in an effort to discover where one gives evidence of miscarriage of justice and requests and receives a public inquiry due to criminal negligence of local authority legal staff and Public Family Law staff, including CAFCASS - I need a name or name of department to send evidence of a grave miscarriage of justice by RBKC Council, Public Family Lawyers and CAFCASS (not exhaustive), it is urgent as children remain at risk despite my trying many methods to get them to safety- this is criminal professional negligence on a massive scale and it is in the publics' interest for there to be a Public Inquiry as so many people (hundreds) of professionals are implicated here, who do I
write to to request the Inquiry please?

Yours faithfully,

Liz R

Sir Malcolm Rifkind has said he is discussing thisngs with the council but he is aware and been told, I believe, in the past, to send everything straight to RBKC legal department, c/o Anne Lehane, so I can;t ask my own MP to help further than I already have, do I have other options please?

Achow, Ann,

Dear Ms R

Thank you for your request for information dated 14 February 2011 below
and your further e mail dated 20 February 2011 in which you say:

"Sir Malcolm Rifkind - RBKC- has said he is discussing things with the
council but he is aware and been told, I believe, in the past,to send
everything I send to him, straight to RBKC legal department, c/o Anne
Lehane, so I can't ask my own MP to help further than I already have, do
I have other options please?"

I am sorry that I am unable to provide the information which you request
because it is not held by the Supreme Court. The Freedom of Information
Act (FOIA) requires public authorities only to provide recorded
information which they hold.

However, the FOIA requires public authorities to provide requestors
with reasonable advice and assistance. In order to provide you with
advice and assistance I have been able, by using Google, to find a
website http://www.publicinquiries.org/home which may be of interest to
you although I have no personal knowledge of using the site or of the
accuracy of its content. There is also legislation covering Public
Inquiries which you can access from a publicly available website
www.legislation.gov.uk . In addition you may be able to find out more
information from legal textbooks which you should be able to order from
your local lending library.

As part of our obligations under the FOIA, we have an independent review
process. If you are dissatisfied with this response, you may write to
request an internal review. The internal review will be carried out by
someone who did not make the original decision, and they will re-assess
how your request was handled.
If you wish to request an internal review, please write or send an email
to the Director of Corporate Services within two months of the date of
this reply, at the following address:

Director of Corporate Services, The Supreme Court of the United Kingdom,
Parliament Square, London, SW1P 3BD

If you remain dissatisfied after an internal review decision, you have
the right to apply to the Information Commissioner's Office under
Section 50 of the FOIA. You can contact the Information Commissioner's
Office at the following address:

Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow,
Cheshire, SK9 5AF

Dear Supreme Court of the United Kingdom,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Supreme Court of the United Kingdom's handling of my FOI request 'Public Inquiry Request: Miscarriage of Justice, Public Family Law'.

Thank you for your kind website offerings.

We think you ought to have some more help for us as British Citizens seeking access to justice - like a Public Inquiry- how are we to manage without the ECHR if we can't have a central body to contact that will act for us if we have something as serious as an Public Inquiry addressed and disabled people being denied all access to justice thus seeking a Public Inquiry to report mass white-collar crime? It's all a good argument to stay in the EU isn't it?

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:

Yours faithfully,

Arnold, William,

Dear Ms R

Your email to Mrs Achow of 21 February requested an Internal Review of
Mrs Achow's decision of the same date upon your Freedom Of Information
(FOI) request of 14 February, which was itself supplemented by your
further email of 20 February.

Your email of 14 February asked for the name of an individual or
Department to whom to send evidence of 'a grave miscarriage of justice'
and to whom to write to request a public inquiry.

As Mrs Achow explained, the FOI Act requires public authorities only to
provide recorded information which they already hold. It does not
require public authorities to acquire information they do not hold in
response to requests for such information.

I have checked that Mrs Achow was correct in telling you that the
Supreme Court does not already hold the information you are seeking; and
I can confirm that she was correct. I can therefore confirm that she was
also correct in her decision that the Supreme Court cannot provide you
with the information you sought, because the Supreme Court does not hold
it.

Mrs Achow's reply did, however, suggest a number of other sources in the
public domain from which you might be able to obtain the information you
are seeking.

Mrs Achow's email also set out the procedure for applying to the
Information Commissioner, should you remain dissatisfied with the
outcome of this FOI request.

Dear Supreme Court of the United Kingdom,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Supreme Court of the United Kingdom's handling of my FOI request 'Public Inquiry Request: Miscarriage of Justice, Public Family Law'.

The ICO refers me back to you.

By law, I believe you ought to have the information, please defer to your legal department to assist?

Thank you.

Achow, Ann,

Dear Ms R

With reference to your e mail below I understand that Mr Arnold has
carried out an internal review in relation to your request for
information dated 21 February 2011 and that he sent you his reply
yesterday. There is no mechanism under the Freedom of Information Act
(FOIA) for you to request a further internal review response to this
request. As I explained in my reply of 21 February if you remain
dissatisfied after an internal review decision, you have the right to
apply to the Information Commissioner's Office under Section 50 of the
FOIA.

You mention that 'by law I believe you ought to have the information'. I
am sorry to advise you that your assumption is incorrect. There is no
legal requirement under the FOIA for public authorities to provide
information which they do not hold, neither is there any other legal
requirement for the Supreme Court to hold the information you have
requested.

Yours sincerely,
