Maurice Kirk: F.O.I.A. requests ignored by authorities re: that withheld letter[s] that saw Maurice Kirk remanded in prison, for nothing 01 Jan. 2021 + archive

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

 My timeline is related to FOIA requests, and more, made to, and ignored by: 1] the Chief Constable of South Wales Police, Mr. M. JUKES  and 2] the entity known as G4S PLC [who run “security” in the relevant prisons Mr. MAURICE KIRK is connected to in this matter: HMP Cardiff and HMP Parc]. These 2 subjects, as the timeline below shows, were asked, via a formal F.O.I.A. [S.A.R. / DPA request for a copy of this letter – authored by Maurice Kirk and meant to be sent to myself – which was stopped from leaving HMP Cardiff by the G4S prison employees and/or SWP as it had an alleged “substance” on it which might [qu.] “caused distress to another” [unqu.] [referring to the charge M KIRK was remanded in custody regarding]. This withheld letter obviously exists as Mr. Kirk was charged with attempting to send it to myself, along with other letters to others [at least one other, whereby the charge was later dropped too after M KIRK’s remand in HMP on the strength of these “noxious letters”, which did not have any “noxious substance” attached to them eg. anthrax, or in the case of former MP Mr. A. Cairn’s letter, which was supposed to have “heroin” attached to it – the charge pertaining to that, which also enforced the custodial remand of Maurice Kirk, being dropped also at a later date. I requested too any other letters pertaining to myself that were not sent to me from either HMP Parc or HMP Cardiff from Mr. Kirk, during the times Mr. Kirk was resident in either of these prisons in 2019, whether they had any alleged “substances” on them or not. As can be seen from the timeline, everything has been ignored by each government department contacted. After the alotted period of time had passed for these FOIA requests to be responded to, which they weren’t by either the SWP, or G4S, the INFORMATION COMMISSIONER’S OFFICE [I.C.O.] was contacted, and a formal complaint was made regarding these 2 entity’s refusals to act regarding the statutes in place regarding the formal F.O.I.A. [S.A.R.] / D.P.A. requests made to them. However, the I.C.O. refused to deal with my formal complaint to them, so a complaint was made about everything to the Secretary of State for Justice – Mr. Robert Buckland, at the Ministry of Justice, London [MoJ]. The “Disclosure Team” at the MoJ responded, at first, replying with my original FOIA request to SWP, but then prevaricated, asking at first for my ID, which was immediately sent to them, but then, amazingly, they replied again asking what I wanted with them, even though I -AND THEY – had sent the original FOIA request made to the SWP Chief Constable which I had included in my original notification to Mr. Buckland. After the failure of SWP’s Chief Constable to respond to the FOIA request, originally made in September 2019, a formal request for an INTERNAL REVIEW was made to SWP – a request to investigate this non-compliance by this SWP to ignore a formal FOIA request. However, this request for an “Internal Review” into SWP’s non-actions was also wholly ignored also by them, so a formal complaint was made to the “tiger with no teeth” the “Independant Office for Police Conduct” – the IOPC – who promptly passed my complaint of malfeasance by SWP back to – guess who? – the SWP themselves – the very entity guilty of so much malfeasance already, and regarding not only FOIA requests. The IOPC passed my complaint onto the SWP “Professional Standards” – we are not holding our breath waiting for them to respond and do their jobs with due diligance and responsibility. So, no responses from anyone anywhere, including the Sectretary of State for Justice himself, regarding the rules THEY MADE [re: FOIA requests], but refuse to comply by! 
These cases are ongoing, need I add?

Dear I.O.P.C.,
I wish to make a formal complaint about SOUTH WALES POLICE’s failure to comply with my request for an Internal Review pertaining to the Chief Constable Mr. M. JUKES failure to comply with my FOIA [SAR] / DPA request [which is attached: attachments 1,2, should’ve been dated 17 Sept. 2020, and updated with a clearer version, sent shortly after on and dated the 28 Sept. 20: attachments 3,4].
The acknowledgement message from SWP regarding my request is shown below, dated the 28 September.
 SWP have misled me throughout regarding this Internal Review requested by myself, stating in their last email, directly below, dated 02 Nov. 2020 that they would “be in touch with me” after my request dragged on and on – but of course they didn’t respond in any shape or form and their statement is completely false, and in reality SWP are ignoring my Internal Request throughout.
SWP also ignored my initial FOIA request, attached [attachments 1,2], which caused my request for the Internal Review in the first place and the MoJ are currently dealing with this malfeasance regarding the SWP’s deliberate ignoring the UK Governments rules in place regarding formal FOIA [SAR] / DPA requests made to them.
I complain regarding this blatant malfeasance by these public servants SOUTH WALES POLICE regarding their ignoring of the Internal Review request originally sent to SWP, dated the 26 September 2020, the message shown below, and acknowledged by SWP on the 28 September 2020 – that acknowledgement shown below too.
Thank you for your time.

 26 September 2020


 Dear Mr. Jukes,

 Seeing as I am denied my F.O.I.A. [S.A.R.]  / Data Protection Act request sent already [and attached to this message] to yourself, and after receiving the letter below [attached also] from a Mr. [redacted], a “Disclosure Officer” of S. Wales police I hereby ask for a formal internal review regarding the denial of my request.

 It is believed the S. Wales police force does have the letter referred to in my request as Mr. Kirk was criminally charged and remanded in custody connected to the letter addressed to myself [amongst others] written by Mr. Kirk whilst previously resident in prison earlier in 2019, the letter allegedly having allegedly a possibly noxious “white substance” on it. This letter was stopped from being sent to myself by prison authorities / police at the time. The criminal charge of the letter which was attempted to be sent to myself has subsequently been dropped by the CPS.

 I have already sent 3 forms of ID pertaining to myself after your request for ID.

 For your information, the addition / amendment not sent with my written request, which was sent to Mr. Jukes at the S Wales police HQ at Cowbridge Rd. via recorded delivery R. Mail, is:

 FROM:  Mr. J. G. Graham, ————

 18 September 2020

 UPDATE TO MY F.O.I.A. / D.P.A. Request to the Chief Constable Mr. M. Jukes, dated and sent 17 Sept. 2020:

 Dear Mr. Jukes, Chief Constable of S. Wales police:

 Please refer to my F.O.I.A. request to you, sent via R. Mail and also attached to this message. I apologise for leaving out an important part of my FOIA / Data Protection Act / S.A.R. request to you – that is:

 Mr. Maurice Kirk [d.o.b. 12/03/1945, at present residing at [redacted]  was charged by the police in mid-2020 with:

 ” attempting to send a substance which caused distress to another [approx. May 2019] – the letter was stopped from leaving the prison last May 2019″

 Mr. Kirk was in prison at the time of sending this letter, it being addressed to myself prior to it being stopped from leaving the prison, by authorities. This charge to Mr. Kirk was subsequently dropped in approximately June 2020.

 My FOIA requests asks for a copy of this letter which was stopped as it had an alleged “substance” on it which might [qu.] “caused distress to another” [unqu.] – as it obviously exists as Mr. Kirk was charged with attempting to send it to myself. I request any other letters pertaining to myself that were not sent to me from either HMP Parc or HMP Cardiff from Mr. Kirk, during the times Mr. Kirk was resident in either of these prisons, whether they had any alleged “substances” on them or not.

 The letter relating to the charge that was dropped for Mr. Kirk was referred to in part by the S. Wales police officer who wrote by email to myself – a copy of that email dated 06th July 2020 from officer “redacted” of S. Wales police being sent with my 1st and original FOIA request letter to you sent on the 17 September 2020 via Royal Mail Recorded Delivery 1st class.  My F.O.I.A. request and attachment is attached to this email.

 Thank you.

Dear Ms. ——————-,
In answer to your enquiry I can confirm I know Maurice Kirk as an acquaintance more than a friend.
I must add I have never received any letter from him with anything resembling a “white powder” attached to it. I understand that this “white powder” in question, after formal forensic investigation, proved to be common toothpaste.
I hope this helps.
Thank you,

Good evening sir,
Thank you for contacting me. The local officers attended your address at my request to establish if a J Graham esquire still lived there and if so to pass on my contact details.
The reason for my enquiry is to ask you if a male by the name of Mr Maurice KIRK is known to you. A letter addressed to a J Graham found to contain an unknown  white powder was seized at HMP Cardiff but my initial enquiries via the Royal Mail post code checking application did not match the addressed envelope.
The letter was seized as a precautionary safety matter as this was not the first letter that Mr Kirk had addressed to someone containing an unknown white powder.
I would be grateful if you wold confirm if Mr Maurice Kirk is known to you and in what capacity i.e. a personal friend  or a relative for example.
I hope that officers attending your address did not cause you any alarm or inconvenience.

      :arrow: :arrow: :arrow: When, and if the 3rd remaining charge of Maurice Kirk “stalking” his local and current MP even gets to court and a jury in upcoming May this year the truth will be forced out to show just how much this outrageous case is completely meritless and without foundation, similar to numerous other charges and convictions and imprisonments in the past, eg. since 2009 whereby MK has been forced to spend at least 5 years behind bars via highly questionable imprisonments connected to the breaching[s] of a “restraining order” made against Maurice connected to a certain doctor / clinic controller – an “order” that was never served upon Maurice according to the law in the first place. Maurice Kirk is 77 this year, and has certain quite serious medical conditions ie. Barrett’s Syndrome etc. that make being in prison not a viable option – this is definitely no way to spend your final days fighting bs cases that have occurred – and continue to occur, sadly. The UK Govt. legal reps. are livid with the Welsh Govt. legal reps [allegedly, of course] for pulling the wool over their eyes YET AGAIN regarding this latest assault on Maurice’s life, and when the UK Govt. legal reps. found out the truth [which made them livid with the Welsh in the 1st place] – 2 of the 3 charges against MK were immediately dropped [1st charge [dropped] sending “noxious substance” [allegedly "heroin"] attached to then serving MP Alun Cairns, M’s former longstanding MP, “which…
