Sent March 14, 2014 6:38 AM
Subject – BREACH OF FOIA 2000 AND 2012

Dear Sirs

This letter is for the attention of the next Walberswick Parish Council (WPC) Meeting on the 7th April 2014 and in particular the Walberswick Parish Council misconduct over the past 24 months relating to FOIA requests and the management of the same.

In particular, the WPC have relied upon my Upper Tribunal Case ref GIA/3037/2011 Dransfield v ICO & Devon County Council decision as a Court Authority on 3 different FOIA requests from Williams/Widden/Linely. The Dransfield decision was not a court authority at the time of your vexatious exemptions and more importantly it is not a Court Authority at this juncture Mar 2014.

Therefore, your reliance to apply section 14/1 vexatious exemption may well be overturned at the Court of Appeal Hearing t.b.c.

I understand that seven (7) Walberserwick Councillors resigned over this matter and you have issued apologies to the three FOIA requesters.

Please consider this letter as a twofold request.

Firstly, to be addressed at the next WPC Meeting on the 7th April 2014 ,i.e formal complaint against WPC. Secondly, as a FOIA request to provide me with copies of all FOIA requests and your responses for the past 2 years please including a copy of the WPC apology to the 3 FOIA requesters aforementioned.

WPC may well argue that they took advice from the the ICO and in particular the ICO Vexatious Guidelines version 1(undated), but I can advise WPC that I consider that document to be sub-judice and the WPC should have taken external legal advice.

There is prima facie evidence of a wider conspiracy by the ICO and nationwide public Authorities such as the WPC to pervert the course of Justice by the wilful circumvention of the FOIA 2000 and 2012.

I put you on notice that I reserve the right to cover all legal costs should it be proven that WPC have used my name in bad faith , e.g. libeled my good name.

For your information, action and files.

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield
