Lack of Compliance at the ICO

Information Commissioner, Vexatious Posted on Wed, July 29, 2020 18:39:48

Information Commissioner’s Office

Under protection of the FOIA please provide me with the Internal and External Audits for  the ICO compliance to the ISO 27001 for the last 2 years. As you are aware, the ICO have advised me that ALL my FOIA requests will be refused under a blanket Vexatious without investigation. I must advise you and caution the ICO from using a blanket  vexatious refusal under section 52(2)(c) and it will be considered by me as fraud  and further egregious conduct by senior officials of the ICO and I will consider it contempt of court by Ms Elizabeth Denham. As you are aware, I have a forthcoming UT Hearing  (TBC)and in the event the ICO continue  to breach section 77 of the said act, I will add this specific case to my UT Bundle.

With thanks

Yours  sincerely

Information Commissioner

Dear Madam

I wish to lodge a formal complaint against Mr Alex Ganotis who has worked as a Senior Manager for the ICO whilst a full time councillor at Stockport Council. Perusal of the ICO website will confirm Mr Ganotis has not complied with the Statutory Register of Interests for himself and spouse. I am also somewhat concerned that Mr Ganotis is approving Vexatious Exemptions (see below ICO decision).

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield

No Register of Interests at the ICO

Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham

Dear Madam

I wish to report a serious failure by numerous senior managers including Ms Elizabeth Denham. In particular, please see the Register of Interest page at the ICO web site  – not one single ICO Managers has completed the ROI in accordance with law. There are currently 9 Senior Managers who have completed the ROI. However not one single manager has  included their spouse.  I have raised this matter with you before and you have ignored me. I will now  take this matter up with the Local Ombudsman because you are funded by the Government. Alex Ganotis is a Senior Manager and has failed completely to fill out any ROI. I find it hard to believe only 1.5 % of the total ICO staff are required to adhere to the ROI. Even  Senior Managers with the authority to approve and sign off Vexatious  Decisions.

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Dear Sirs

I wish to alert her Parliamentary Select Committee that the Information Commissioner’s Office has been operating in a legal void for over a decade. In particular,I wish to draw your attention to the following facts

1. The ICO do not recognize the ISO 9000 series for QA/QC.

2. The ICO do not recognize the ISO 14000 series for Environment Protection.

3.The ICO have been using an unlawful Court Precedent from the Court of Appeal EWCA Civ 454 15th May 2015 Dransfield v ICO. Thousands of FOIA  requests have been denied under the Dransfield Vexatious Exemption. Perusal of the Court of Appeal will support my claims that the CoA decision was reached via a corrupt mindset, please see para 68. Moreover the three CoA Judges made NEW LAW. Judges apply the law,they don’t make new laws.

The ICO decision database will shows thousands of vexatious decisions have been made by the ICO and they are acting in concert  with the Government to pervert the course of justice. 

With thanks

Yours sincerely

First Tier Tribunal

Dear Sirs

I wish to seek legal redress against the ICO, whom, have breached my data and human rights under the GDPR 2018. My name, Alan Dransfield  which has been unlawfully published in the ICO decision notice 25 times.  The ICO never publish the name of the complainant and they know or should know they should not publish my name either.

I call upon the GRC to instruct the ICO to remove my name from their database and I do also believe the GRC can enforce a compensation figure  for the unlawful  publishingof  my name. I also ask the GRC to find the ICO in contempt of Court. I really do not believe it is necessary for me to submit an application form to the GRC as the following ICO holds compelling evidence that the ICO have breached the GDPR.

with thanks

Yours  sincerely

Dear Sirs
I believe my data protection rights have been breached by the ICO. In particular, they published my full name in one of their Decision Notices 25 times, the ICO ref # FS 50802258 dated 6/6/2019. I was not informed they would publish my name and I did not give them permission to do so.
My name has also been published in ICO Decision Notices (DN) guidelines, public documents etc over 10,000 times since I became the Vexatious Court Precedent in Jan 2013 via the Upper Tribunal GIA/3037/2011 which was upheld by the Court of Appeal EWCA Viv 454 May 2015.

I also believe the Cabinet Office via their Brexit Dept DExEU have breached my Data right for publishing my name on line as an integral part of their Brexit debates.

One major foundation stone of the FOIA 2000 is that it must be the FOIA request NOT the requester which must be classified as VEXATIOUS, thus there is no legal requirement to have my good family name published 25 times in one single ICO Decision Notice.

Ignorance of the law cannot be used in defence of a legal argument. I maintain my data breach is driven by the ICO egregious conduct and maladministration by the ICO.

My understanding of the GDPR 2018 is my name Alan M Dransfield is classed as my data and should not be used by the ICO in their decision notices. In the event you would concur with my prognosis, I would instruct you to seek compensation from the ICO and the Government. I would suggest/recommend that the ICO pay me £10 pounds for every time they have used my F

family name in pursuit of their FOIA/EIR/DATA . I would estimate the Dransfield name has been unlawfully used by the ICO approx 250,000 times give or take 10K. You may well wish to seek a higher compensation benchmark, that’s down to you.

I would also ask your law company to investigate libel and defamation of my good family name when my name has been unlawfully published. Prior to the ICO allegations, my character was impeccable. Hence the ICO allegations against me have had a devastating effect on me and my family and friends.

I understand the terms of your legal advice would be no win no fee situation.
As this email mentions ICO and Elizabeth Denham in person, I consider it prudent to cc the ICO in my mailing list.I look forward to your response.
With thanks
Yours sincerely
