Information on mental health policy and legislation.

Response

 

Further to my letter of 7 February 2019 I have now completed my review of our response to your request under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) for information related to mental health law in Scotland.

I consider that your dissatisfaction with the way in which we have dealt with your request relates to our decision that you had not clarified your request sufficiently so that we could identify the information that you were seeking, and so we were not obliged to provide it. 

I have concluded that the original decision should be confirmed with modifications. This is because, having reconsidered your requests, I now consider that questions 3, 5 and 6 (as noted below) sufficiently describe the information you are requesting and so are valid requests for information.

 

Q3

My request for information under FOI legislation is also requesting to know what legal juristiction the psychiatric clinicians in Scotland are using to foist their fraudulent diagnosis based on compartmentalization and ommission of relevant facts on people deemed as vulnerable and delinquent due to the state apparatus never informing them or teaching them about their true birth rights and inalienable sovereign status, standing and capacity. 

Sovereign men and women have rights to a second opinion by independent clinicians and those rights are undermined due to the fact that there are no truly independent psychiatrists available in Scotland.  This is because psychiatry is a fraud.  It is state apparatus with a focus on controling people with pseudo sciences with their roots in Eugenics. 

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Scottish Government does not have the information you have requested. However, you may wish to contact the General Medical Council at foi@gmc-uk.org who may be able to assist you with this query. The Scottish Government does not have the information that you have requested because it is not responsible for the subject on which you have requested information.

This is a formal notice under section 17(1) of FOISA that the Scottish Government does not have the information that you requested.

 

Q5

I am also requesting information on the Mental Welfare Commission and Human Rights Commission in Scotland.    I want to know all about their status i.e are they employed in public office?   What checks and balances are in place or not so that the sovereign people of this nation state can see if they are doing what they are supposed to be doing for the best interests of the people of the nation or not. 

Some of the information you have requested is available from the websites of the Mental Welfare Commission and the Scottish Human Rights Commission.  Under section 25(1) of FOISA, we do not have to give you information which is already reasonably accessible to you.  

 

Q6

I also want to know explicitly and exhaustively about the legal jusristiction that [the Mental Welfare Commission and the Scottish Human Rights Commission] operate in and why. 

Some of the information you have requested is available in Part 2 of the Mental Health (Care and Treatment) (Scotland) Act 2003 and the Scottish Commission for Human Rights Act 2006.  Under section 25(1) of FOISA, we do not have to give you information which is already reasonably accessible to you.
