Mae'r ymateb i'r cais hwn yn hwyr iawn. Although not legally required to do so, we would have expected The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal to have responded by now (manylion). Gallwch gwyno drwy yn gofyn am adolygiad mewnol.

Dear The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal,

Can you please provide any disciplnary action and complaints or alledged breaches of the rules and regulations applicable to solicitors and their firms, including The Solicitors' Code of Cinduct 2007, the SRA Code of Conduct 2011, and the SRA Principles 2011, in particular any private data and information breaches of any natural individual person under the Data Protection Act 2018 and GDPR in breach of their fundamental rights and freedoms, made against the solicitors within this solicitors' firm J E Baring & Co that also has a current limited company J E Baring Ltd and previous voluntarily struck-off company called J E Baring & Co Ltd.

A reasonable person may conclude that all these people may know each other and have strong links to the Chancery Division of the High Court and the local authority.

'Thank you for the Public Search & Office Copies link that was very useful and for confirming that although an application for a writ of restitution should according to Chancery practice be normally put before a Chancery Master, on this one occasion on Thursday 31 January 2019 it was very unusually put before Mrs Justice Sarah Falk a High Court judge of the Chancery Division, who did in fact give permission for this urgent application notice hearing that was not included in her list for that day, for a High Court Writ of Restitution under case number BR-2018-001576, in the High Court of Justice Business and Property Courts of England and Wales and Companies List (CHD) that was sealed the following day Friday 1 February .

In fact this application was indeed put in by Michael Abram Goldstein Insolvency Practitioner/Trustee solicitors, a partnership firm J E Baring & Co who are based near the Rolls Building and are also the external solicitors used by Maidstone Borough Council, who signed the application in the name of the solicitors' firm on 31 October 2019, and without stating the position or office held when signing on behalf of a firm or company, for a without notice Order in aid of an unlawfully obtained writ of possession order dated 29 November 2018, enforced on 23 January 2019 with extreme violence that could easily have resulted in death.

It is presumed that all documents presented to the court, a witness statement of Mr Goldstein and the No.66 Combined Writ of Possession and Control Order dated 29 November 2018 being highly irregular and issued as if coming out of the Central Office ( Queen's Bench Division) rather than Chancery Chambers and having been made out to a company and not to a named High Court Enforcement Officer assigned to that company.

In this case Court Enforcement Services Ltd and afterwards crossed by hand and replaced with Equita.

Equita Ltd are the same enforcement agents used by Maidstone Borough Council.

The High Court Enforcement Officer for Court Enforcement Services was Simon John Williamson and the High Court Enforcement Officer for Equita still is James William Metcalfe, who assigned out this enforcement work to Newlyn PLC enforcement agents. Newlyn PLC is without an appointed High Court Enforcement Officer.

Companies House records also confirm that the Insolvency Practitioner/ Trustee Michael Goldstein did not become a director of RG Insolvency Ltd until Friday 1 February 2019 (date the writ of restitution was sealed) and the same day that Simon John Williamson HCEO for Court Enforcement Services resigned as a director.'

Yours faithfully,

Ed Boyce
