Attn Karla Bailey Lead Case Officer
I now wish to elevate my complaint to the next level of the ICO complaints procedure, as I fervently believe the ICO have breached my Information rights by refusing my Subject Access Request ( SAR) on grounds my request is Manifestly Unreasonable.
No person applying a right and proper mind could refuse my SAR under such exemptions.
As you are aware, the ICO has consistently refused my FOI requests under section 14/1 vexatious exemption and now for the first time my SAR has been refused. It is consistently obvious to me that ICO senior managers including Elizabeth Denham are acting in concert to harass me. At best, your refusal decision is a Wednesbury Principled decision, and at worst, a decision to pervert the course of justice. I suggest the latter.
In the event I have not received a response to this letter within 14 days, I intend to pursue a private prosecution commencing at Chester Magistrate Court under protection of The Fraud Act 2006 and the Data Act 98

Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham
As you are aware, the ICO have instructed court bailiffs to recover nearly £4000 legal costs in connection with The Court of Appeal Case C3/1855/ 15th May, Dransfield v ICO.
Are you not aware that a public authority cannot use taxpayers money to seek legal redress?
Therefore, please advise your bailiffs to cease and desist harassing me for such legal costs.
I will take this opportunity in submitting a FOIA request to the ICO for all cases in which the ICO have pursued legal costs against any FOIA complainant/requester since Jan 2013.
Yours sincerelylan Dransfield
