The take down request was sent by a junior employee?
I'd be surprised at that somehow.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

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

I am writing to request an internal review of British Broadcasting Corporation's handling of my FOI request 'Take down request in relation to Monthly Performance Pack disclosure'.

I don't understand because you mention LLP yet the communications are by a junior member of staff? That doesn't make sense to me. Either the communication is from a legal professional or junior member of staff, in which case how can you rely on both exemptions?

Is it one communication or multiple communications?

Can you tell me how many communications there are and of which type?

Surely you can redact some of the personal information and publish as much as you can?

I have already spoken to WDTK who have told me "The message we received notes their redaction failure, asks us to take the material down, and promises a properly redacted replacement if we do."

Therefore, in the light this, I think you could be releasing something more than nothing.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/t...

Yours faithfully,

Nath

From internal review document: "I have reviewed the correspondence (between BBC and WDTK) and spoken to its author and I can confirm that it was created for the purpose of proposed or contemplated litigation."

So let me get this right: The BBC somehow thought it could take legal action against WDTK for publishing the information it erroneously released entirely through its own incompetence?

Good luck with that one.
