In the Netherlands (Dordrecht is in the province of South Holland) ...
A man from Dordrecht has been told he will be jailed if he writes more than two letters of complaint to the city council a month.
The council had gone to court urging action against Mustafa Karasahin who sends officials dozens of complaint letters and freedom of information requests a month.
Karasahin is angry that the council has put a sequestration order on some of his properties because he is refusing to meet tougher new rules on rental properties.
Magistrates had earlier banned Karasahin from sending more than 10 letters a month to the council but he has refused to comply. So far this year he has sent officials 440 letters, all of which have to be dealt with.
Dordrecht says answering the post is costing €500,000 a year and involves 2.5 full time officials to deal with the correspondence.
But even if he goes to prison, he will cost Dordrecht some money: 11.30 € per day for the cell.
The chances, I think, are rather low:
Nederlandse grondwet/Hoofdstuk 1
Ieder heeft het recht verzoeken schriftelijk bij het bevoegd gezag in te dienen.

Everyone has the right to submit written requests to the competent authority"
