Attn of the Select Committee overseeing an inquiry into the
FOIA 2000

Ladies and Gentlemen

I understand you have been given the remit to make formal
inquiries into the FOIA 2000 and to this end I wish to offer tangible evidence
that will assist your task and reduce the cost to the public purse with
your investigations..

In actual fact there is not a lot wrong with the FOIA 2000
other than a few irregularities and anomalies with the legal
interpretation of section 14 (1) vexatious exemptions.

The primary reason why the FOIA is NOT seen to be working
and in my view is currently in meltdown is because the oversight authorities i.e., the ICO have been conniving and colluding with rogue judges and rogue public authorities nationwide in a wider conspiracy to circumvent
section 77 of the FOIA 2000.

In particular, I draw your attention to the Upper Tribunal
decision 2012-(UTUK) 440-AAC a.k.a. GIA/3037/2011 Dransfield v ICO and the
Devon County Council. This case has been used in approximately 400 other vexatious
decisions handed down on a whim by the ICO.

That’s 400 vexatious decisions handed down by the ICO since
Jan 2013.

It would be prudent of you to examine GIA/3037/2011 in close
detail because that decision is the main reason for the meltdown of the ICO.

The Court of Appeal upheld the Vexatious decision and
by doing so rubber stamped the gagging of Joe Public. Please see CoA decision
C3/2013/1855 Dransfield v ICO & Devon County Council.

Arbitrary vexatious decisions are being handed down by the
ICO with the sole intent to cover up serious sex crimes and serious economical

Please feel free to call me as a witness for your ongoing

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield

Devon Campaigner.
