Dear Diane,

We have made enquiries internally with our legal team who have advised that the Ministry of Health is not familiar with the case number you have quoted.
We do not keep documents in the way you are referring and as legal proceedings are on foot the documents would be subject to legal privilege.

Apologies, in this case we are unable to help you further.

Warm regards,

Ministry of Health GIPA Team

Dear NSW Ministry of Health,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of NSW Ministry of Health's handling of my FOI request 'Case 2020/002/00268161'.

The statement that the Ministry of Health is not familiar with the case contradicts previous FOI’s with NSW health on the case and the fact that it is listed in the Supreme Court of NSW.

Further if the claim to not be familiar with the case is accurate then the comments about legal privilege could only be speculation.

What was sought was copies of the documents required under the ‘Model Litigants Policy’ relating to the approval of the Premier for the case to proceed.

These documents would have been prepared prior to the commencement of legal proceedings under M1997-26 and therefore not part of those proceedings and would not attract legal privilege.

[ GIVE DETAILS ABOUT YOUR COMPLAINT HERE ]

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/c...

Yours faithfully,

Diane
