The authority would like to / has responded by postal mail to this request.

Dear Keeper of the Records, Scotland:

An unusual Freedom of Information request for your office. Please read and save a copy if you intend to declare having no information about any of these issues. Please.

Please forward any information possible to explain the ongoing
torture, as defined by UN, of Marian Price McGlinchey of Belfast.
Thank you.

Also, have you received new training materials related to
understanding and implementing new United Nations guidelines
regarding what constitutes 'solitary confinement' and what is
considered torturous " confinement" by UN standards. In
2010, the UN declared all forms of electroshock therapy to also be
torture. These are tremendous and great celebrations of
humanitarianism. You should have recieved paper work from the UN
to share with law enforcement and medical personnel related to both
solitary confinement and electroshock therapy. You can contact the office of the UN and demand that paperworkl today. Thank you for any
guidance you can provide. You may be aware the HMP Hydebank, a
womens and youth detention center with hospital facilities has
turned away UN doctors, and are now turning away Red Cross who
would like to check on the safety and condition of prisoners.
Please assist, in any way.

Thank you for your service.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS E-MAIL ADDRESS IS NO LONGER IN USE. IF YOU HAVE AN FOI REQUEST FOR NATIONAL RECORDS OF SCOTLAND, PLEASE SEND IT TO:

Dear Keeper of the Records of Scotland,

I am in the process of clarifying via the UN what I read about electroshock therapy. This might have been an error. However, guidelines defining solitary confinement as torture are very real, the UN has also declared access to communication a human right that cannot be violated even in prison conditions.

I will forward the stated guidelines outlining these changes when I can.

Yours faithfully,

leanne flynn
