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 gulity 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?TIMELINE [minus relavent attachments]:

REQUEST FOR AN INTERNAL REVIEW
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:

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.

—-> see the latest posts from Maurice Kirk [www.mauricejohnkirk.com]:
The trial for this alleged and highly discerned subject is planned for May 2021 at Exeter Crown Court, and a clue to what it’s all about, [Alfie]: the “noxious substance” attached to letters from MK he was charged with attempting to send [3 of them] whilst he was in HMP Cardiff, in May 2019 [or thereabouts] wasn’t “anthrax” at all, but common toothpaste – the letters withheld immediately by the G4S screws [who, incidentally, are above prosecution and immune from prosecution – it sucks, doesn’t it? considering their track record of assaults on MK and the denial of vital medication for weeks [Omerzaparole], + even vital + important preplanned hospital appointments and even court hearings were routinely denied him [all “alleged”, of course] – the denied medication leaving him in such pain [via his “Barrett’s Syndrome” stomach ailment] that he couldn’t even walk, so they then gave him ONE CRUTCH, instead of two, or a BROKEN WHEELCHAIR to “help” him get around in the hellhole prison. MK’s family got sent to him a new wheelchair [or 2] which immediately met with “problems”, shall we say [identical to the wheelchair got for Gloria Musa, whose wheelchair was never given to her at all and disappeared in identical problematical circumstances when she was forced into prison]. Ever tried only using one crutch when you can’t walk, and having to go up and down prison landing staircases to get food, etc? Such preplanned evil! The screws must’ve had a field day! Anyway, it wasn’t “anthrax” [or “heroin”] at all on those letters, but common toothpaste, it being used in the desperate times to stick the piece of paper to his cell wall. Of course the sitting magistrate believed PC Plod’s fairy stories regarding this nonsense, remanding MK into HMP immediately on hearing their sad tale, with MK subsequently banged up in prison for over 7 months as a result until judges saw the light and released him on a tag with multiple restrictions – curfew, residence restrictions etc. – all knocked out one by one after repeated bail application hearings in Exeter Crown earlier this year. Are you trying to tell me the screws didn’t realise immediately it was toothpaste when stopping these letters, particularly as it had the distinctive smell, and anyway: where is MK going to get copious amounts of “anthrax” or “heroin” from, when in prison? [it was alleged former MP Alun Cairns received a letter with “heroin” attached, around the same time]. An obvious preplanned and manufactured set-up [allegedly, of course], enacted to thwart MK’s existing cases in the courts re: his £million machine gun case [highly questionable] which has been ongoing – and thwarted and interfered with by the PTB – for years, especially because of the refusal by Welsh authorities to forward 20+ lever arch files containing damning evidence in MK’s favour, especially the medical records from “Caswell Clinic”‘s chief – regarding whom the “restraining order” [never served properly according to UK or any other laws] was connected to. Finally, after a 10 year [or more] battle, they had to relent and follow the judge’s formal court order to release these files, finally, to MK recently, but more are owed that haven’t been given…. The case continues,with gusto!! …The jury trial for this alleged and highly discernible subject of letters, but and more so the “stalking the MP” trial is planned for May 2021 at Exeter Crown Court – 2 of the 3 original charges from mid-2019 being dropped by the London CPS [who are running this show now, we are reliably informed] regarding the [alleged] letter with “heroin” on it to the former MP A. Cairns, and the [alleged] letter to myself with the “noxious substance on it likely to cause “grief etc.” leaving the “stalking of the MP” charge remaining – wholly exaggerated, of course, and factually incorrect if the true facts / circumstances were known! Watch this space!!! Maurice is 76 and won’t be here forever, and these characters have done a prize-winning job of stretching this case out to outrageous degrees – taking years to do something a few minutes would take ie. pressing a button on a computer to print the withheld files to forward to MK, the files requested since after the trial in 2009 whereby MK was acquitted, as the “dealing in machine guns” farcical charge was not only disgustingly fake, but the machine gun in question itself was tampered with [allegedly] by certain police-connected persons [allegedly, of course] – by being painted a different colour, for starters! The jury back then in 2009 took little time to find MK “not guilty” on the “dealing” charge, and that was the beginning, since, of years of untold harassment upon MK…with him having to spend at least valuable 5 years of his life in prison, on + off – since 2009, courtesy of these SWales police for the connected “breaching a restraining order” connected to the [blackmailed by cops, allegedly] consultant doctor [who ran “Caswell Clinic”, whose name cannot even be mentioned online for fear of reprisals] who even left the NHS because of things [another story]. Now, all looks fine and dandy except that the restraining order WAS NEVER SERVED UPON MK ACCORDING TO UK or any other 3rd World LAW IN THE FIRST PLACE – a fact they’ve got away with when giving MK years upon years of prison sentences, time and again. Being forced to spend at least 5 years in prison out of 10 years since 2009 is, of course, totally unacceptable, I’m sure any reader with more than one atom of a brain will agree. SHAME ON THEM. These cases continue, if we all live that long, which we will!! [hopefully…].
Maurice had only been released from a lengthy sentence a matter of weeks when this pic below was taken, but little was it known that around 3 weeks later, in mid-February 2019, he would be hauled before the Welsh court again and charged with, yet again, the “breaching of a Restraining Order”, being forced yet again to serve yet another highly questionable sentence imposed by a Welsh “judge” pertaining to the a “Restraining Order” that was never served upon Maurice in the first place. For years this Welsh judiciary has got clean away with these utter “abuses of process” – and it’s long past time that a formal enquiry should be held into the criminality of the passing of these sentences on the very much targeted Maurice Kirk – jailed so many times wrongly!
