The UK’s judges are a law unto themselves, they are unregulated masters of their own destiny and many are failing to act according to the law. Spoilation of evidence, meaning the intentional or reckless disregard of evidence in proceedings is the method of choice for many. Evidence, facts and points of law are often disregarded to favour one side.
Many judges in the UK are inventing their own versions of the law or acting to deliberately misrepresent laws and legal precedents and the courts are being used as vehicles from which to achieve injustice. Cash cows for the large corporate law firms and their regular service users who are more often carry greater preference than the newcomer to the particular jurisdiction. A form of bias founded by human instinct that again conflicts with the principle of natural justice.
There may not be so much bribery in the direct form, but it is happening. What is rife and widespread is where the UK’s judges are acting in ways that violate the principles of natural justice and as such, are violating people’s rights to a fair trial. The laws are good, the problem is with the ones that are upholding the laws.
The regulator does not regulate:
Judicial misconduct diminishes the public’s trust in the judiciary and the rule of law. As if it is engineered deliberately in such a way, the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office (“JCIO”) have limited their scope of investigation to the extent that they fail to deal with the prolific judicial misconduct, such as spoilation of evidence or violations of the principle of natural justice, acting in situations of perceived or actual bias.
The headline of the JCIO website is that;
“We cannot accept complaints about a judge’s decision or the way a judge has managed a case”
Yet, more often than not, it is the way the judge has managed the case that leads to injustice and in most cases, the wrongdoing is founded by favour.
The scope of the JCIO’s “investigatory” capability is limited to;
-The use of racist, sexist or offensive language
-Falling asleep in court
-Inappropriate use of social media
-Misusing judicial status for personal gain or advantage
In reality these four narrow criteria occurring are a rarity. The JCIO officers are not legally trained, they do not have the capability to address the wider issues of day to day judicial misconduct that prevails through all of our courts and so therefore the judges, who are well aware of the lack of capability of the regulators, can get away with judicial misconduct completely unpunished in the knowledge that the JCIO will reject any complaint that comes to them that falls outside the criteria.
It is our view that the JCIO is an absolute abuse of the public’s trust and a misuse of public funds. Their staff are arrogant and unhelpful, they do not do what they purport to do and in essence deceive the public into belief that there is a judicial regulator when in reality there is not. The ones at the top of the Ministry of Justice food chain must be held to account.
Police are instructed to refuse to investigate any allegation of criminality leveled against a judge and to advise the complainant to refer their complaint back to the JCIO, a cycle that leads to nowhere. Hence, judges in the UK are unaccountable and unregulated, or they were until more recently.
Intelligence UK is here to bridge the gap, to investigate judicial misconduct on an impartial basis and to take action as a private agency to target the perpetrators in a way disassociated with common purpose public regulators that often “cover for the other”.
We are here to act in the public interest, to restore the rule of law and to hold judges that engage in misconduct to account in the criminal courts or by means of public exposure for their wrongdoings. A major driver of judicial misconduct is not only the lack of regulation, but also the lack of exposure when judges have done wrong. Freedom of the press is compromised, so we aim to bridge the gap with the imminent launch of our own platform to expose the judicial wrongdoers.
In the Supreme Court case of Cape Intermediate Holdings Ltd -v- Dring (for and on behalf of Asbestos Victims Support Groups Forum UK)  UKSC 38. It was cited that: “The constitutional principle of open justice applies to all courts and tribunals exercising the judicial power of the state”
Rule 5.4C of the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR) provides that a person who is not a party to proceedings may obtain from the court records copies of a statement of case and judgment or orders made in public, and, if the court gives permission, ‘obtain from the records of the court a copy of any other document filed by a party, or communication between the court and a party or another person’. In practice however, this does not provide the level of transparency required, because there are very few who would pay the prescribed fee to inspect a case just out of interest.
There needs to be more transparency:
There is a cure for corruption and that is, most certainly, transparency. If there is genuine fear of being exposed in the public domain for an act of judicial misconduct or corruption, public pressure will force the hand of law enforcement to act. That fear will instill the respect for authority that is completely lacking in the current judicial arena.
Journalists have absolute privilege and it would further the principle of open justice to have judges that engage in misconduct or corruption exposed internationally in the public domain over the internet. The issue is, that freedom of the UK’s press is vastly compromised, so we need to do it as an independent publisher and specialist agency dedicated to combatting domestic corruption. It is the lack of transparency or ability of the public to scrutinise judicial decisions conflicts with the principle of open justice that is primary cause of the constitutional crisis and break down of the rule of law in the UK.
The right to self-determination under the rule of law is the very fabric of the liberty of our society, yet one cannot self-determine any decision that is concealed. Transparency the ability of the public to monitor how well justice is being served is the key and that door is opened by advocation of that constitutional principle of open natural justice.
The right to self-determination and the right to scrutinise the public official and the public authority is a birthright gift of every UK citizen. Our common law jurisdiction was designed that way, to enable accountability, openness, transparency, honesty and integrity. The fundamental principles set out by the late Lord Nolan known as the 7 principles of public life that is the pre-requisite duty of every public servant to adhere to. Again, many do not, because the regulators are failing to regulate. It is the failures of the regulators and the lack of regulation and accountability that is the driver of misfeasance, nonfeasance and injustices.
In the case of the judiciary, there are no regulators, only other judges who simply fail to do so. Judges defend one another and will not find against a fellow member of their fraternity unless they are forced to by public exposure or profile of a case. Now, there is a solution, the Intelligence UK solution.
