As you are aware, a public servant holds a public office and operates in the public in order to serve and protect the public, and is NOT a private servant, thus a public servant’s full name and job title must NOT be redacted in order that there can be accountability for all acts and or omissions.

The public statutory office MINISTER-OF-JUSTICE a corporation-sole and the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE a corporation-aggregate exists for 1, one, purpose only - to serve the people and has no other purpose. This is not a gift or an altruistic service - it is a public service.

FOIA: Who are the temporary High Court Judges and What are the Process and Procedures for Issuing Judicial Judgements and Publishing Judicial Judgements for the Court of Judicature of Northern Ireland?

Greetings naomi rachel: long: hugh: widdis: and timothy: logan:

I, mary anne: acting in the capacity as Dr Anne McCloskey, claimant, private civilian, sui juris, a living woman of peace, hereby claiming all rights nunc pro tunc:

I am writing to give notice for an internal review of civil servants’ for the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE's handling of my FOIA request 'Who are the temporary High Court Judges and What are the Process and Procedures for Issuing Judicial Judgements and Publishing Judicial Judgements for the Court of Judicature of Northern Ireland?' dated 23 March 2024.

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

I, as the claimant, hereby give further notice for an internal review regarding my Freedom of Information Act 2000 claim / request dated 23 March 2024:

On the 25 March 2024 a strange message via whatdotheyknow.com was sent from an UN-NAMED civil servant /public servant / public office holder for the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE, FOI Team, Records-&-Information-Management, and you will all be aware that an ‘anonymous’ Freedom of Information Act 2000 response by unnamed civil servant is a direct breach of the ‘NORTHERN-IRELAND-CIVIL-SERVICE-CODE-OF-ETHICS’ paragraph 3 and as such must be a direct breach of the Seven-Principles-of-Public-Life including, but not limited to 1.4 Accountability as all civil servants “are accountable to the public for their decisions and actions and MUST submit themselves to the scrutiny necessary to ensure this.” But not limited to these.

As all civil servants within the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE are accountable to naomi rachel: long: acting as the MINISTER-OF-JUSTICE, I have the reasonable expectation that my Freedom of Information Act 2000 request / claim 23 March 2024 must be responded to in accordance to the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and issued by named civil servants for the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE to ensure accountability, fairness, transparency, openness, honesty, etcetera.

This 25 March 2024 a strange message allegedly from an un-named civil servant for the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE publically stated on whatdotheyknow.com:

“Good afternoon, Thank you for your email.

We have transferred your Freedom of Information request to the Northern Ireland Courts and Tribunal Service, they will respond to your request.

Regards,

DoJ FOI Team
Records and Information Management | Department of Justice”

I, as the claimant, reject and rebut - in its entirety – this message dated the 25 March 2024 as this is an attempt to obstruct and block disclosure of information, documents and records held or not held (confirm or deny) by the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE by an un-named civil servant for the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE regarding my Freedom of Information Act 2000 request / claim 23 March 2024.

I do not consent - in any way to this message dated the 25 March 2024 as this message is not in accordance to the Freedom of Information Act 2000 as it is an attempt to obstruct and block disclosure of information, documents and records held or not held - confirm or deny - by the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE by an un-named civil servant for the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE regarding my Freedom of Information Act 2000 request / claim 23 March 2024.

I, as the claimant, I do not consent - in any way to my Freedom of Information claim / request dated 23 March 2024 made specifically to the named respondents for the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE being “transferred …to the Northern Ireland Courts and Tribunal Service, they will respond to your request [to DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE dated 23 March 2024]” as stated by an unnamed civil servant for the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE in their message dated the 25 March 2024.

This message by an unnamed civil servant for the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE dated 25 March 2024 is not in accordance to the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and I consider these acts and omissions as clearly an attempt to obstruct and block disclosure of information, documents and records held or not held, confirm or deny, by the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE by an un-named civil servant for the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE regarding my Freedom of Information Act 2000 request / claim 23 March 2024.

Therefore this message dated the 25 March by the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE by an un-named civil servant for the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE is a nullity and void, it is unlawful, ultra vires, incurably bad, fatally defective regarding my Freedom of Information Act 2000 request / claim 23 March 2024 made specifically to the named respondents for the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE.

The unnamed civil servant for DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE who wrote and sent the message dated 25 March went beyond any limited powers that this unnamed civil servant might have been delegate by what I consider to be blocking and obstructing disclosure of information, documents and records held or not held, confirm or deny, by the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE regarding my Freedom of Information 2000 Act request / claim dated 23 March 2024 and made specifically to the named respondents and civil servants for the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE.

I, as the claimant, state that it is a truthful fact that the INFORMATION-COMMISSIONER’S-OFFICE “ICO” guidance for public authorities that includes, but is not limited to DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE clearly outlines what make a valid request / claim:

INFORMATION-COMMISSIONER’S-OFFICE’s “ICO”:
What is the FOI Act and are we covered?

“…everybody has a right to access official information. Disclosure of information should be the default”

INFORMATION-COMMISSIONER’S-OFFICE’s “ICO”:
‘Guide to Managing An FOI Request: What makes a valid request’:

‘To be valid under the Act [Freedom of Information Act 2000], the request must:

• be in writing. This could be a letter or email … ;
• include the requester’s real name…;
• include an address for correspondence…a postal address or email address;
• describe the information requested. Any genuine attempt to describe the information will be enough to trigger the Act …’

This is not a hard test to satisfy. Almost anything in writing which asks for information will count as a request under the Act …” [emphasis added] https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/foi...

So why are civil servants within the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE trying to block and obstruct my Freedom of Information Act 2000 request / claim dated 23 March 2024 when it is a Freedom of Information Act 2000 request / claim?

Is this attempt to block and obstruct my Freedom of Information Act 2000 request / claim because if the civil servants within the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE respond and ‘confirm or deny’ it will reveal inconvenient information to the public that civil servants with the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE are trying to conceal?

It is common knowledge and has been widely reported in the legacy media for years that civil servants including senior civil servants within government departments were involved in acts and omissions to actively avoid disclosing information and avoid their duties and obligations under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. A selection of many examples below:

• In 2018, the Scottish Information Commissioner concluded that the Scottish executive had engaged in ‘deliberate delaying tactics [with] requests being blocked or refused for tenuous reasons’;

• In the 2018 – Renewable Heat Incentive “RHI” / “Ash for Cash” scandal, inquiry and media coverage regarding the acts and omissions of civil servant within DEPARTMENT-OF-ENTERPRISE-TRADE-AND-INVESTMENT and the NORTHERN IRELAND EXECUTIVE regarding avoiding Freedom of Information Act 2000 obligations and duties.

• See ‘Research Handbook on Information Policy’ edited by Alistair S Duff, 2021.
• but not limited to these.

I reasonably believe that civil servants within DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE are through their acts and omissions, trying to block, conceal and obstruct my Freedom of Information Act 2000 request / claim dated 23 March 2024.

My Freedom of Information Act 2000 request / claim dated 23 March 2024 relates directly to information, records and or documents held by DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE. I have clarified to civil servants within the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE that my FOIA request / claim includes, but is not limited to:

• any sort of information and or record

• information and records that were authored by public servants, civil servants and/or agents for the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE.

• any information such as a record, briefing paper, correspondence, departmental correspondence, policy paper update, update to the Justice Committee of the NORTHERN-IRELAND-ASSEMBLY,

• any sort of any published legislation and or statute that public servants, civil servants and/or agents for the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE have downloaded or printed or electronic information, records, computer files and or templates kept on the FUJITSU developed – Integrated-Computer-Operating-System ‘ICOS’ and the FUJITSU developed CAUSEWAY computer system, but not limited to these systems.

I, as the claimant, respectfully have no other choice, but to reasonably believe based on material evidence that this 25 March 2024 message is put forward as a bad faith attempt to obstruct and block disclosure of information and records held or not held, ‘confirm or deny’, by civil servants within the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE regarding my Freedom of Information Act 2000 request / claim dated 23 March 2024.

Respectfully, I as the claimant further remind and give notice to the named Respondents and all civil servants, employees and agents for DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE for your duties and obligations under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, including, but not limited to, under section 77 ‘Offence of altering etc. records with intent to prevent disclosure’.

Section 77 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 clearly states:

“(1)Where—

(a) a request for information has been made to a public authority, and

(b) under section 1 of this Act ... the applicant would have been entitled (subject to payment of any fee) to communication of any information in accordance with that section, any person to whom this subsection applies is guilty of an offence if he alters, defaces, blocks, erases, destroys or conceals any record held by the public authority, with the intention of preventing the disclosure by that authority of all, or any part, of the information to the communication of which the applicant would have been entitled.

(2) Subsection (1) applies to the public authority and to any person who is employed by, is an officer of, or is subject to the direction of, the public authority.”

As you are further aware, that you and all civil servants’ as part of your civil-service contract of employment is that all civil servants are bound to adhere to the ‘NORTHERN-IRELAND-CIVIL-SERVICE-CODE-OF-ETHICS’ available from the DEPARTMENT-OF-FINANCE:

pdf https://www.finance-ni.gov.uk/publicatio... and html version https://www.finance-ni.gov.uk/articles/n... ,

As you know, point 3 of the ‘NORTHERN-IRELAND-CIVIL-SERVICE-CODE-OF-ETHICS’ clearly states:

“3. Civil servants, as holders of public office, are expected to uphold the seven principles of public life. https://www.gov.uk/government/publicatio...

Seven-Principles-of-Public-Life https://www.gov.uk/government/publicatio...

"The Seven Principles of Public Life (also known as the Nolan Principles) apply to anyone who works as a public office-holder. This includes all those who are elected or appointed to public office, nationally and locally, and all people appointed to work in the Civil Service, local government, the police, courts and probation services, non-departmental public bodies (NDPBs), and in the health, education, social and care services. All public office-holders are both servants of the public and stewards of public resources. The principles also apply to all those in other sectors delivering public services."
[emphasis added]

These 7, seven principles include, but are not limited to:

‘1.4 Accountability Holders of public office are accountable to the public for their decisions and actions and MUST submit themselves to the scrutiny necessary to ensure this.’
[emphasis added]

The MINISTER-OF-JUSTICE also has overall responsibility for civil servants for the DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE and for the NORTHERN-IRELAND-COURTS-AND-TRIBUNALS-SERVICE in its entirety, overall responsibility for legislation regarding the justice system, the courts and tribunals system, policing, etcetera and also responsibility regarding FUJITSU developed and – Integrated-Computer-Operating-System ‘ICOS’ and the FUJITSU developed CAUSEWAY computer systems / contracts.

IN-CONCLUSION:-AN-INTERNAL-REVIEW:-A-FINAL-OPPORTUNITY-TO-CURE:

In the event that the Respondents failure to supply a full, complete and sufficient Freedom of Information Act 2000 response for my request / claim 23 March 2024 was an oversight or otherwise unintentional, as the claimant I grant the named Respondents for DEPARTMENT-OF-JUSTICE an opportunity to cure by way of an ‘Internal Review’ in order to cure the fault and effect the remedy of a full, complete and sufficient Freedom of Information Act 2000 response for my FOIA request / claim dated 23 March 2024.

I a wait for a full, correct and complete and sufficient response for my specific and precise request / claim dated 23 March 2024 in accordance to the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Thank you in anticipation.
