Dear Mr or Ms Shand,

DATA PROTECTION ACT 1998

SECTION 10 NOTICE

In support of my Section 10 Notice dated 17 April 2017 I have identified the following statements by the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service from the same source which expose as inaccurate all statements by the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service pretending that my correspondence has been properly handled and that the Scottish Enterprise fraud case has been adequately investigated, and these are reproduced and numbered below in italics for convenience with my explanatory comments following in normal type:

 

1.     (redacted) is saying we have earlier papers on this – can you check and put them together if so with the bundle?

These statements further indicate that this case and my correspondence have not been properly handled. Instead it indicates that the handling of my correspondence and the Scottish Enterprise fraud case by the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service has been shambolic.

 

2.     Annex A

        Date                        Sender                  Recipient               Subject

    10 October 2008    Lesley Thomson     Eddie Cairns        Enterprise Ayrshire

                                                                                               and Scottish Enterprise

                                                                                               intimating case

                                                                                               now closed and no

                                                                                               further correspondence       

                                                                                               will be entered into

 

This is the response to me from the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service after several important letters are recorded as having been received from me requesting clarifications, as listed in Annex A.

The record of the Subject confirms that no substantive response was sent to me and no clarifications were provided. The correspondence was just terminated despite my serious concerns being entirely unaddressed.

   

3.     We would only have to deal with correspondence that raises new substantive issues that have not previously been addressed.

This confirms that the substantive issues raised in my letters ought to have been addressed but Annex A shows that they were not addressed at all.

The false impression conveyed in this statement is that my letters did not raise substantive issues that had not previously been addressed. In fact, as Annex A records, none of the issues raised in my letters had been addressed although they alleged grave failures including the concealment of material evidence and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

 

4.     As you will see, I have decided that we will not proceed with an investigation of Mr Cairns’ complaint. Under the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman Act 2002, I am required to notify you of my decision.  

This statement confirms that the disclosure stating that I had been ‘bounced’ by the Ombudsman was inaccurate and damaging, giving the false impression that my concerns were inconsequential.

 

Since this case is a matter of very serious concern to the general public I have published this letter on the internet.

Yours sincerely,

                                   Eddie Cairns.
