Latest ‘WhatDoTheyKnow’ reply to Devon & Cornwall Police. In The Public Interest.


Blog posted 12 December 2017


Dear PATTINSON Lynn 56398,

Very disappointed Devon and Cornwall Police invited me to write or contact them again should I “have any further inquiries concerning this matter” but has now decided to withhold information instead which would have clarified its response of 29 November 2017.

I refer to their comment “Interviews are stored on a server located within the Devon and Cornwall Police estate”, and my further inquiry “Would you please advise me if the estate in question is Middlemoor ? and advise me if CCTV is also stored at the same estate.”

Devon and Cornwall Police will recall I should have received CCTV footage of the Recorded Interview and my unlawful detention in Cell 9 within 40 days of my Subject Access Request (SAR) on 09 December 2015, but Devon and Cornwall Police instead broke the Law and withheld the CCTV footage for some 6 months.

Devon and Cornwall Police will also recall a criminal Trial took place during that 6 month period and the absence of the CCTV evidence did pervert the course of justice and did deny me my Human Right to a fair Trial.

I believe I am justified in saying the Devon and Cornwall Police Data Protection Office/Freedom of Information Office is little more than a protection racket to cover-up corrupt procedures and protect corrupt officers, and is not unlike the equally corrupt Devon and Cornwall Police Professional Standards Department (PSD) which replaced my official complaint against it with a single email paragraph and colluded with the IPCC to legitimize the criminal act. Fortunately, they both failed to get away with it.

Please feel free to take me to Court if you disagree.

Yours sincerely,

Geoff McLaughlin
