Prepared internally, no external costs.
With regard to the current 49 States Members elected on the 22nd of June 2002.
Please supply basic detail of appearances within the Petty Debts Court by any these States Members over the past 4 years?
Any information held in response to this request is absolutely exempt from disclosure in response to a FOI request because it is personal information which is absolutely exempt under Article 25 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011, and we therefore decline to provide anything in response to this request. The details of any appearances at the Petty Debts Court would be the personal data of the individual States Members. There was no requirement for these details to be disclosed under the Elections (Jersey) Law 2002 and we do not have the consent of the States Members for disclosure under the FOI Law.
The table and results of Petty Debts Court hearings are published on www.gov.je and once they are removed from that page may be inspected in person at the Magistrate’s Court by arrangement with the Magistrate’s Court Greffe.
