Copies of all relevant documents relating to decision or measure complained of have not been submitted in particular you have not provided a copy of the order and transcript of the County Court decision refusing an extension of time and permission to appeal following an oral hearing on the 26 February 2014.
As a result your complaints cannot be examined by the Court. Please note that no documents or submissions you have provided have been kept.
You are also advised that the submission about alleged violations by far exceeded the space allowed for a purpose on the application form. In any future application you should provide a summary of this space not more than one page.
If you wish the Court to examine your complains you must submit a complete and valid application form with supporting documents as required by Rule 47.
To find out how to make a valid application you can visit the Court's website where the process of lodging an application is explained.
I should remind you that the six month period reffered to in Article 35 1 of the Convention is interrupted only when a complete application is set to the court.
They sent us another form and a booklet with this letter to fill in.
