I applied in May 2018. Got an email reply yesterday that says 'Continue to be processed' - however, got a letter reply dated 28Jan which says:
The Delay in processing this file is regretted, however, it is the case when an application is submitted to the Minister. We are obliged to ensure that all relevant information is available to the Minster in order for him to make a fully informed decision. Your patience is appreciated in this matter.

I am very confused now about different replies. Now the next step is I am going to apply for FOI soon and then will go for Judicial review if nothing happens in the next 6-9 months.
