Where to Complain When Officials of a Court Behave Corruptly

We're waiting for bert to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Her Majesty’s Courts and the Tribunals Service,

I sought to progress a complaint against an official of the Bournemouth Court. Despite me supplying a second court copy of their own correspondence, the (2nd) court say they have no record of any correspondence.

The complaint is quite serious, it's against a court official (of the Bournemouth Court) for fraudulently issuing application in my name. I sought to complain but the other court improperly directs me. Given protracted correspondence, I suspect its time to escalate this matter.

Where officials of a court behave corruptly, where does one direct complaint?

Yours faithfully,
bert

HMCTS Customer Service (Correspondence),

Thank you for your email of 15 September regarding an issue at Bournemouth Court.

I am sorry your experience of HM Courts & Tribunals Service (HMCTS) has not been a positive one. I understand that you are unhappy with the service you have received from the court. HMCTS has a complaints process to investigate and resolve complaints about how a court or tribunal case has been administered. This allows the court or tribunal where the problem has occurred to investigate and put things right.

Further information about the administrative complaints process can be found on the Ministry of Justice website at the address: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisati....

Raising a complaint through Her Majesty’s Courts and the Tribunals Service might take several months to complete, especially if you pursue it through all stages. HMCTS is unlikely to address anything of a criminal nature so in theory the matter should be reported to the police.

However, that in itself is more likely than not to present further obstacles as the following bares out:

Dear Her Majesty’s Courts and the Tribunals Service,

Thank you for your message. I decided to follow your guidance and complain.

It may be the case that my complaint is dismissed as a simple operational failing on the part of the second court however, what's more serious is the resistance I've experienced. It's my guess the Bournemouth Court (or perhaps those of the same interest) don't care to deal with this matter. If this is the case, what is the title of the offence being committed and, which authority is charged with dealing with it; I'd imagine the police are correct authority here but seek a confirmation.

Yours faithfully,
bert

Thank you for your enquiry.

I am sorry I have not seen your previous correspondence so I can only provide general advice.

If you are unhappy with how the court deal with an administrative complaint, you can escalate it. Further information about the complaints process is available at: www.gov.uk/government/organisations/hm-c...

If you believe a member of court staff has committed a criminal act, this should be reported to the police.

Dear Her Majesty’s Courts and the Tribunals Service,
Thanks for your message.
I enclose last two messages sent you. Do I expose something outside your competence; that's to say, a failing of the court which would be better directed to police? Otherwise, would you kindly identify the authority to send my complaint.
Yours faithfully,
bert

HMCTS has a complaints process to investigate and resolve complaints about how a court or tribunal case has been administered. This allows the court or tribunal where the problem has occurred to investigate and put things right. You should explain your complaint to the court and ask them to fully investigate your concerns and reply. They will also provide you with details of how you can escalate your complaint to the next stage should you remain dissatisfied. Further information about the administrative complaints process can be found on the Ministry of Justice website at the address: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisati....

If you believe illegal activity has taken place, the allegation should be brought to the attention of the police. The police may consider the evidence and it would need to be referred to the Crown Prosecution Service for a decision to be made about whether the matter should be taken to court. This does not, however, determine that the police must make a decision to investigate all allegations that are put to them. I cannot comment on the actions of the police or how they make their decisions.
