Julian Assange -questions are vexatious.

Paragraph 83:

  1. “The term “vexatious” is not defined in the FOIA. The Upper Tribunal (UT) considered the issue of vexatious requests in the Information Commissioner v Devon CC & Dransfield (UKUT 440 (AAC), 28 January 2013).1 The UT commented that “vexatious” could be defined as the “manifestly unjustified, inappropriate or improper use of a formal procedure”. This definition clearly establishes that the concepts of proportionality and justification are relevant to any consideration of whether a request is vexatious. “


Another iffy decision from Denham

ROBERT A PICKTHALL (RAB) DEATH- CORONER’S INQUIRY

Dear Sir

I am deeply concerned that you intend to conclude the Coroner’s Inquiry on the subject title next Monday 6th Jan. You may or you may not be aware that I have an open complaint of egregious conduct and maladministration by Mr Paul Crowther  the British Transport Police (BTP) Chief Constable. There is demonstrable evidence that the BTP have failed to follow their own Policy and Procedures eg witness statements not signed, earliest witness statement two week post death.

Mr Ian Henderson (IH) Officer in Charger (OIC) has adopted a cavalier attitude to an open and shut case of suicide. I was friend of RAB and I do not believe that he committed suicide and the BTC advised me at the offset, I was an interested party and I would be kept updated. I have received no update and as far as I am concerned my claim of egregious conduct and maladministration stands. There appears to be a myriad of  irregularities and anomalies with the BTP case management i.e., imposter as next of kin, removal of RAB’s life savings from the Bank 24 hrs after RAB’s death, the Genuine NOK Zelda Davies was rejected.  Text Messages from RAB’s Phone 10 mins before his death whilst his phone was known to be in RAB’s house. I have been following this case closely and it would appear to me the BTP are akin to the Pink Panther or Carry on up the Copper. Some 5 months post death and not a pip squeak from the BTP. I was planning to write to you post Coroners Decision. An integral part of the Coroners decision is to learn lessons to avoid suicides, and I would expect the coroner to condemn the Cheshire &Chester Council (CWCC)whose actions and inactions have driven RAB to his death, if indeed it was a suicide, because in essence the egress conduct and maladministration by the harassment and false witness  claiming RAB had submitted thousands of abusive  emails to CWCC officials, which couldn’t be further from the truth. The ICO instructed the CWCC to release personal data at the beginning of July 2019 but instead of releasing RAB personal data they commenced a High Court Custodial sentence of RAB. They knew or should have known this was in contempt of Court. I state categorically  that if CWCC had obeyed the ICO order to release RAB’s personal data he would be alive today. This is something that I hope you can share with your fellow coroners nationwide as a lesson learned. 

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Dear Sir

I believe you have just elevated Nicky Morgan to the House of Lords because she is holding a gun to your head  regarding the Egregious Conduct and Maladministration by Elizabeth Denham at the ICO.  Nicky Morgan Sec of State for the Digital Culture Media and Sport has turned a wilful blind eye to thousands of vexatious refusals in which the Dransfield Vexatious Court Precedent has been used. Indeed you used the Dransfield Court Precedent  during your tenure at the Foreign Office, ditto for Theresa May whilst she was Home Secretary and PM, ditto for Michaels Gove whilst SoS for Ministry of Justice. All of your Government Departments are currently using the Dransfield Vexatious Precedent (DVP) and your DExEU were prolific users of the DVP.

I call upon the PM Office to call for a Public Inquiry into the Dransfield Vexatious Court Precedent which is being used on a daily basis to cover up serious and heinous crimes. This can be verified by a simple ocular inspection of the Court of Appeal decision by the Court of Appeal (2015) EWCA Civ 454 Dransfield v ICO. In particular para 68 clearly supports my allegations of egregious conduct and maladministration. At this juncture the Dransfield Vexatious BS is the Tory party silver bullet to cover up.

serious and henious  crimes, paedophillia, fraud and theft of public funds etc.

Dear Sirs

I am on record that the Chief Constable Paul Crowther has failed his fiduciary  duty of care in connection with the suicide of Mr Robert A Pickthall at Acton Bridge Station Cheshire on the 31st July this year. I am an interested party in this case  but have not been kept informed as promised by the BTP. Quite frankly, I believe the CC Crowther has not taken this suicide death seriously.

Withnthanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield
