Dear Dr Panigrahi,

Thank you for your email received on 15 February 2018.

I can confirm that we can investigate a service complaint against a lawyer who is, or was, providing you a legal service within the last 6 years.

We are under the impression that Monneka Thair of Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors LLP, was providing you a legal service at some stage. If this was not the case we would not be able to become involved in your service complaint.

If Monneka Thair of Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors LLP ('the firm') was providing you a legal service within our time limits, we may be able to investigate your service complaint.

However before we can confirm if we can investigate, we need the following from you:

1. A copy of a written response you received from the firm, which is in response to your complaint of 28 December 2017. Or alternatively, proof the email address you sent the complaint to is active. Any email you have received from we would consider as proof.

2. Our enclosed complaint form to be completed and returned to us, this will ensure your complaint falls within our jurisdiction.

Please be aware that we are only able to investigate the complaint aspects which are within your complaint email of 28 December 2018.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely David Johnson Legal Ombudsman Telephone: 0300 555 0333

The Legal Ombudsman

1. Thank you for your emails this morning. 2. I forward to you the letter of persecution that I received from Ms Monneka Tahir to confirm my complaint against WhiteroseBlackmans Solicitors concerning my UK citizenship and would request you to expedite consideration so that I receive official clearance for my travel to Greece in April 2018 without hindrance from the Greek authorities or unlawful hindrance from the UK authorities on my return from Greece to my residence in the United Kingdom. Yours sincerely

Dr Shantanu Panigrahi

Subject: Urgent - case of Dr Shaitanu L. Panigrahi

To: Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors


Dear Madam or Sir,


I had Indian citizenship by birth from 1957.

I lost the same when I took British citizenship by naturalisation in 1982 and lived in UK thereafter making short trips to India and Switzerland where I kept most of my money. But then due to a severe prejudicial incident I renounced UK citizenship to the Home Office and applied for political asylum to India in 2014. GOI did not even care to acknowledge the same so in disgust in 2016 I applied for citizenship of Pakistan somewhat after this. I am a most wealthy person so this was not problematic to obtain, if you understand my meaning. But I am currently physically present in UK still holding a UK passport and I am concerned if it is still valid due to the UK citizenship renunciation. I did not comply with requirements after that, because I had changed my mind about the renunciation and Home Office are too inflexible to amend retrospectively. Also, when I now travel will I be subject to harassment in India over the matter of Pakistan citizenship which I would not disclose? When I return to UK could I be detained for travelling on cancelled UK passport and denied entry. This matter is not suitable for junior or lower-tier staff, kindly to refer it to your senior solicitor, preferably an experienced lady. I cannot pay more then £1,000/hour (+VAT) for legal advice but up to that amount I am flexible. Better number is 07967789619 in case the state tax authorities or other agents are bugging my landline 01634 379604.

Payment to yourselves would be made by TT from Zurich.

So many thanks for the future help you can render to me.

pp Shaitanu L. Panigrahi
