Can anyone explain why the data processors used by Scottish Borders local authorities for over 20 years, who dumped the files in a rubbish bin, have been protected from public identity throughout this entire saga? The ICO referred to them as "GS" in their penalty notice as did the written tribunal judgement. Three separate FOI requests to the council were all rejected on the grounds it was personal information and could not be revealed.My own FOI to the ICO also resulted in the information being withheld. Surely the data processor should have been fined/sanctioned then been named publicly.
