Peter Karran states that he has evidence of official tampering with files.

Unfortunately, due to the sensitive nature of this evidence it will never become available in the public domain.

Through a Data Access request I have personally found evidence of social workers lying in their reports and was in a position to prove this as all meetings had been recorded.

 

Not only were the officials concerned guilty of a criminal act by falsifying public records, but there were also many other breaches of the Data Protection Act as well as evidence of manipulation by the workers involved.

The 'Department' refused to act on evidence provided to them, official complaints were treated with contempt and disdain.

They refuse, despite the legal requirement for them to do so, to ensure compliance with the Data Protection Act.

 

Although we have an Office of Data Protection it is, essentially, a toothless tiger.

It has no authority to pursue prosecutions of those who breach the Act and no ability to enforce the Act.

It is, despite the best efforts of Iain McDonald the Data Protection Supervisor, nothing more than an advisory office.

Prosecution of breaches have to be privately pursued - something that should not fall to individuals especially given the circumstances of the majority of those individuals likely to be affected by DHSC 'tampering'.

 

I would encourage any person who has had the misfortune to have had dealings with the DSC especially to submit a Subject Access Request to them.

 

Although you may be disappointed to learn that 90% of the information will be redacted by them with your only recourse to seek a privately funded court decision to have that information released.

 

Whilst many reading this would, understandably, be reluctant to share their experiences - until enough of those affected do share - nothing will change.

Why not litigate them if you have evidence?

Is that a joke? Go to the best lawyer on the island and he will tell you, you can't sue the government. It just can't be done.

You can't sue the government, but you can sue a government department.

Data protection supervisor has quite a lot of power to investigate. Have you actually spoken with him?

Don't be silly, a Deemster would deliver a verdict based on the law.

The Isle of Man Courts are headed by Deemsters

And?

 

The opening post says they have written and recorded evidence of people or department acting illegally.

Yeah right; of course they have. Especially when it's a another government department involved. They'll be all over it like a rash and expose all the failings of their fellow civil servants. Not.
