Dear Mr ElCid

Further to the earlier exchange of emails, for a Freedom of Information request to be considered valid Section 8 of the FOI Act 2000 requires a name to be supplied. " Where a request is received and the applicant is either anonymous or suspected to be using a pseudonym there is no lawful requirement to deal with the request under FOIA because the criteria defined under Section 8 is not met"

I suspect ElCid is a pseudonym and I therefore require proof of your given name or of proof of ElCid being your correct name. I confirm your request will not processed until the above requirement of the FOI Act 2000 is complied with and no further correspondence will be entered into until that condition is met.

Yours sincerely

Roger Brace
FOI Officer & Information Access Supervisor

Dear Sussex Police,

This is a simple request why would you not just answer the request so the public and my self could get a satisfactory answer. Is there some information that i have requested that is a state secret or may conflict with police operations. I the spirit of openness and accountabilty why not just process the request. I see no tangable reason why you could not fulfill the request.

ElCid
