Complaints concerning States members internet behaviour (FOI)

Complaints concerning States members internet behaviour (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey on behalf of the States Greffe and published on 14 November 2017.
Prepared internally, no external costs.


Further to the Freedom of Information request dated 8 November 2017, in which it was revealed that Deputy Sam Mezec has had three complaints upheld about his internet behaviour to date.


I would like to know whether any other States Member out of the remaining 48 have had any similar complaint(s) upheld for internet behaviour over the past two years by the Privileges and Procedures Committee (PCC) to date?


I would also like to know what training, if any, Deputy Sam Mezec has been given or offered, since these three complaints were upheld in order to help him behave responsibly and maturely, as expected of all States Members, when addressing members of the Public online?



The Privileges and Procedures Committee have not upheld any complaints in relation to other States members use of the internet over the past two years.


No training has been provided to Deputy S.Y. Mézec on the use of the internet and / or social media since three complaints relating to his online behaviour were upheld by the Privileges and Procedures Committee.

Training on the use of the internet and / or social media is not provided to any States members in their role as private members.

This response has been issued on behalf of the States Greffe. The States Greffe is responsible for the information held by (and on behalf of) both itself and the States Assembly.  Neither the States Assembly nor the States Greffe form part of the Government of Jersey and the Government was not involved either in the examination and retrieval of any information required for this response, nor in the drafting of the response itself.​​
