Dear Ms Zelter

I write in response to your email of 29 June 2017 in which you
requested a detailed response to your application by 20 July 2017.

Work on your application is continuing. Your application raises a
number of complex issues that require careful consideration.

We are not in a position to provide you with a detailed response to
your application at this moment in time. However, we anticipate being
able to do so within the next 4 weeks. *

Yours sincerely

Dear Attorney-General’s Correspondence Unit

re: Consents to prosecute SSD & Mssrs May & Sir Michael Fallon

I write to inform, in relation to the above matter, that for the present time (and until further notice) Ms Zelter will be otherwise engaged while on campaigns, and be largely incommunicado. Accordingly, I would be grateful if you would forward any relevant correspondence to myself, most especially in relation to the now long long awaited decision of the Attorney in relation to our joint applications for prosecutorial consent, and I will undertake to keep her informed.

Thanking you for your kind attention.
Yours sincerely,

Robert L. MANSON


On the 1st October 2015 The Mid-Wales group centered around Knighton in Powys first wrote to the Defence Minister and then proceeded over the next few months to get information to the Llandrindod Magistrates Court and finally wrote to the Attorney General asking for permission to proceed on 19th February 2016. The other 4 PICAT groups did similar actions (Norfolk managed to find 260 people to sign as Informant Prosecutors!) and all 5 cases have now been combined.

To summarise:-

Mid Wales Group – 62 Informant Prosecutors – sent letter to A-G asking for consent to prosecute on 19th February 2016.

Norfolk Group – 260 Informant Prosecutors – sent letter to A-G asking for consent to prosecute on 9th April 2016.

Pembrokeshire Group – 50 Informant Prosecutors – sent letter to A-G asking for consent to prosecute on 3rd May 2016.

West Wales Group – 12 Informant Prosecutors – sent letter to A-G asking for consent to prosecute on 6th May 2016.

Sevenoaks Group – 15 Informant Prosecutors – sent letter to A-G asking for consent to prosecute on 17th June 2016.

Total numbers 399 . First approach to the A-G was on 19th February 2016 and last approach by 5th group was on 17th June 2016.

We have had quite a long correspondence with the Attorney-General’s Office that you can see at


We sent a draft indictment to the A-G which you can see at


We now feel that the delays are unacceptable and the time is getting near when we may have to take out a Judicial Review of the Attorney General’s delay in giving us a proper response to our application to get permission to proceed with our case against THERESA MARY MAY and MICHAEL CATHEL FALLON and THE OFFICES OF SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE DEFENCE AND PRIME MINISTER.

Thanks to everyone for all their support so far, love and peace, Angie Zelter.

The Delay is Unacceptable

29th June 2017.

Dear Attorney General,

Thank you for your email of 29th June 2017. The 399 Informant
Prosecutors in the 5 groups feel that the delay is now unacceptable. We
will therefore be instructing our legal team to consider a civil action
against you, as the Attorney General, if we do not receive a DETAILED
response in 3 weeks time.

Yours sincerely, Angie Zelter, for PICAT.
