Two members of staff at a magistrates' court have been suspended amid allegations of bribery, the Ministry of Justice confirmed today.No names?
The action came after an investigation by The Sun newspaper, during which a man was filmed apparently agreeing to take £500 to avoid putting details of a traffic summons onto a court database.
Police have arrested two men aged 21 and 30 on suspicion of misconduct in a public office and perverting the course of justice.Still no names?
Luckily, the ‘Daily Mail’ will have no truck with this nonsense:
Munir Patel, 21, boasted that he took bribes ‘all day long’ at Redbridge Magistrates Court, East London, The Sun reported.Or, maybe they really need to spell it out for their readers?
It is alleged that he took cash, mainly from ‘Asian brothers’ to avoid putting details of a traffic summons onto a court database.
