That's probably something for WP:ANI.
I haven't looked into the details, but it appears clear to me that unblock
requests should be investigated by an impartial admin. Not the one that did
the block in the first place.

A quick look through the user's contributions shows that this is
not the case.

Step 5: An admin by the name of "Mr. Lefty" locks the user's talk page for
"template abuse". Note that up to this point, all the user has done is put
back a template wrongfully removed by (a) the blocking admin who was also
involved in the dispute and (b) a non-admin user who not only was ALSO
involved in the dispute, but has no right to remove the template.
Result? Naconkantari's abuse of power successfully hidden, user completely
deprived of their right to a fair and impartial look at the circumstances
Naconkantari's abusive indefinite block.
This isn't the first time Naconkantari's acted like this, either. User
Xvidme is blocked as a "sockpuppet of NoLongerScieno" even though
NoLongerScieno's block is "indefinite" because Naconkantari thinks it
violates the username standards.
Isn't it great how admins get away with this all the time? You wonder why
people think there's a cabal? THIS KIND OF SHIT IS WHY.
