Corruption at Magistrates Court

Corruption alleged at Magistrates Court

Unearthing bribery and corruption is the flavor of the month at the moment. Let’s not forget that there are good and bad in every walk of life and that the temptation to take easy money is not a new thing, it goes back thousands of years.

In a somewhat ironic twist, the Sun newspaper, of course part of News International, has obtained evidence that suggests possible corruption from 2 low level staff working at Magistrates Court. The allegations are that the staff agreed not to input data relating to alleged traffic offences in return for a cash inducement. The staff have been suspended by the Ministry of Justice and arrested.

The 2 men in question are facing criminal investigations relating to suspicion of misconduct in a public office and perverting the course of justice.
