"You have not identified any arguable error of law on the part of the defendant. The letter of 23 April 2002 from the Privy Council suggests you may have an alternative remedy which you should have used rather than judicial review."
"As you will be aware the court at your request adjourned the hearing listed for 30 June 2003. We understand that you are seeking legal representation in relation to these matters.
"The court have now re-listed your cases CO/5895/2002 and CO/4600/2002 for hearing on 27 October 2003. We enclose copies of the letters we have received about this listing.
"We would invite you to consider carefully our application that your claim should be dismissed. The claims all relate to IOC orders which are no longer in existence. Your registration is now subject to the substantive order made by the CPP on 3 September 2002.
"As the court letters make clear, it is open to you to withdraw your proceedings and we would urge you to consider taking this step. If you continue with your proceedings and we are required to attend the hearing in October, you should be aware that we reserve our client's right to seek an order that you pay the costs incurred in relation to this matter.
"If you do secure legal representation in this case, we would ask you to ensure that your solicitor is shown the recent application and witness statement of Sarah Louise Ellson."
That witness statement which I have read sets out in full the history of these proceedings. Indeed, with that witness statement before me, this judgment has been formulated.
