How do we proceed?
No, my MP wrote to the North Wales Police and got a reply from a Chief Superintendent "fanciful".
My lodger, a guy from work that I barely knew sold drugs, a neighbour also did but I knew nothing as I had an industrial accident Jan 2008 and had my own problems. I knew nothing!
Operation Scorpion, North Wales Police obsession...
Ok, you need to write a formal complaint to the Chief Constable and set out your concerns.
They are duty bound to investigate what you say and come back to you. If you are not happy with that response then you can consider what is called a Judicial Review. This is where a High Court Judge examines the decision of the Chief Constable and the force to see if it is legal and reasonable. The Judge can agree with the decision or remit it back for further consideration
As this is a High Court matter you would need a Solicitor. Sadly because of the changes in the rules legal aid is unlikely to be available.
Right, do you want an email copy of my previous letter to the Home Secretary or this Chief Constable? Why won't they register a complaint, a local Sgt came to the house wondering why I was being followed, as the local cops didn't know!
But try the Chief Constable then Judicial Review.
I do not think I need a copy of the email. You need to write directly to the Chief Constable and get a final response.
Okay, thank you.
Once you have that you can consider a Judicial Reviw
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Well, why do they not register a complaint?
Indeed. This would form part of the Judicial Review process
But that is what you need to do, register formal complaint directly in writing with the Chief Constable (not email) and seek a Judicial Review
Okay, thank you. Will start writing!
No, I will proceed as you say.
Great. If I could ask you to rate my answer before you go today, the button should be at the bottom of the screen
