Freedom of information request
for Court visitor report RUTH FARRERHALL
ref; your reply link below
Dear Neil Patterson
I refer to your letter above attached in link format.
The reason why we are requesting such information is that your Chief Martin John was supposedly conducting an investigation but I have not received adequate responses as usual to my complaints.
All information in relation to this sordid saga is as you well know is being published with the express permission of my mother linked here: whom I might add holds capacity linked here: report 31 pages.pdf .
You are well aware of our fight for freedom for mum and also the publication of documents to expose the wrong doings of the court where my mothers case is concerned going to the top and therefore given the above we further request a copy without providing any undertaking not to publish.
