The Crown Prosecution Service acknowledges receipt of our FOI request… six months after receipt

On 20 September, 2015, I posted a FOI request to Alison Saunders, Director of Public Prosecutions, the head of the institutionally anti-male Crown Prosecution Service, last month’s Toxic Feminist of the Month. In the letter I requested minutes of meetings she’d had with organizations concerned with the victims of domestic violence, since she started in her post in 2013.

Regular followers of this blog will know the letter was never acknowledged, not even when I emailed the CPS FOI unit on a weekly basis with a link to blog pieces about how overdue the response was. Yesterday, following our blog piece on the CPS response being 22 weeks overdue, it must have finally dawned on the geniuses that we weren’t going to stop drawing attention to their shameless lack of attention to the matter. I received an email with this content:

Dear Mr Buchanan,

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request which was received by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) on 20 November 2015. [I must raise a complaint with the Royal Mail for having taken two months to deliver my letter…]

We apologise for the delay in responding to your request. This has largely been due [my emphasis] to a recent high turnover of staff within the CPS Information Management Unit. [other factors being…?]

Please be advised we are working on your request and aim to provide you with a substantive response to your request in due course.

Once again, please accept our apologies for the delay.

Kind Regards,

Information Management Unit.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
