The argument given for this failure was their inability to determine the truth given two diametrically opposing versions of events. The case is now pending appeal.
My attempts to date to access this report to date under Freedom of Information have been denied due to an exemption covering reports created for the Ombudsman subsequent to the start of an examination or investigation.
I more recently requested it under the Data Protection Office of the Data Protection Commissioner Irish Data Protection Commissioner http://dataprotection.ie/ Investigates complaints about misuse of data Station Road Portarlington Co. Laois Ireland Act but have been refused for reasons I don't entirely understand, and which, if anything, would have indicated that I am entitled to it. I intend responding to that effect in the coming days.
I would have considered the Office of the Ombudsman to have been above the blind acceptance of unsubstantiated hearsay and lies as factual, but this " detailed report" as they refer to it, has already been used to my detriment.
As I know my version of events to be correct and honest, the Office of the Ombudsman are being entirely incorrect by referring to this report as "information", and for that reason, I don't believe their interpretation of the law to be correct.
Specifically, they have referred to:
I interpret this to mean that for the purposes of an investigation or examination, there is no compulsion to withhold. I disagree with their assertion that Section 4 of the Data Protection Act, 1988 applies in this case, because my contention is that the report in question is "misinformation", and not "information" regarding things I supposedly did, and that any CCTV or cross-examination of me will show this to be the case.
This misinformation is being used as a pretext to prevent me from swimming at Longford Sports and Leisure Centre, a council facility. I believe that malicious individuals "organised complaints" to bring about this outcome,as I've done nothing wrong.
It is absolutely essential that I be provided with the information therein, before submitting my final rebuttal ahead of the Ombudsman appeal, as there will not be another opportunity, and my good name depends on a successful appeal.
