It’s always nice to get closure on a previous post
, isn’t it?
Munir Yakub Patel, 22, agreed to use his position as an administration clerk at Redbridge Magistrates’ Court, Cranbrook Road, Barkingside, to avoid putting details of a traffic summons on a court database in exchange for £500.
Patel, of Green Lane, admitted the charge at Southwark Crown Court today.
Well, well, well…
Outside court, Gaon Hart, of the Crown Prosecution Service, said: “Public corruption is an extremely serious offence that undermines public faith in the integrity of those who work in the criminal justice system.
“His conduct has brought into disrepute the criminal justice system as he sought to undermine the very laws which he was employed to uphold.”
Of course, he wasn’t sentenced straight away, oh no.
Patel was bailed until November 11 when he will be sentenced.
Judge John Price warned him he may face immediate custody.
The maximum sentence is 10 years.
One to watch.
Mr Patel's greed is truly shocking and in one single act of perfidious enterprise, he turns the entire mechanism for resolving motoring transgressions, on its head.
The current roadside going rate for dealing with an offence is £100 in the driving licence, unless you are fortunate enough to be stopped by cut price Jaded.
That really is a crappy decision ;^(
Fortunately Melvin I have a sense of humour and can laugh off your spiteful and baseless accusation of corruption.
If you visit my Sarf London manor you will find my chums do a "buy one get one free" bribe system.I personally offer a loyalty card like Costa Coffee where on the sixth stamp you get let off completely.
If you are getting charged £100 per stop in Yorkshire then you are being ripped off.A ticket for not wearing a seat-belt is only £30 and for using a phone whilst driving is only £60.Try haggling!.
I always imagine you Melvin not to be a briber when stopped.I imagine you more to be a "I know your Chief Constable,I play golf with him* I went to school with him* I am in his lodge*
*Delete as applicable.
""I know your Chief Constable,I play golf with him* I went to school with him* I am in his lodge*"
Off topic but,perhaps, lolsworthy: A mate of mine was blessed with the Xian names 'David Ian', he said it was amazing how often answering the 'What's your name?' question with a patently honest 'D.I. Smith' got him the reply 'Sorry Sir, have a nice evening'.
His crime is against the state so his punishment will be severe.
If his crime was against a private citizen, he would be sentenced to the square root of fuck all.
To compare with Kamini Patel charged under the Section 45 of the Serious Crime Act 2007 for asking for an unauthorised police check.
Munir Yakub Patel was charged under the new Bribery Act. Section 2(1) of the Bribery Act states that a person is guilty of an offence if they request, agree to receive, or accept a financial or other advantage intending that a relevant function or activity should be performed improperly.
He's got a footnote in legal history now as he's the first person to be convicted under the new act.
"...Section 2(1) of the Bribery Act states that a person is guilty of an offence if they request, agree to receive, or accept a financial or other advantage intending that a relevant function or activity should be performed improperly."
Gosh, a catch-all for UK police.
Stick me down for a fiver each way on 12-18 suspended.
"I imagine you more to be a "I know your Chief Constable,I play golf with him* I went to school with him* I am in his lodge*

"His crime is against the state so his punishment will be severe."
"Munir Yakub Patel was charged under the new Bribery Act."
And as anon points out, that's potentially a pretty all-encompassing law. What a shocker.
A recipe for manipulating the gullible, lacking in that vital pinch of subtlety, has the cake sticking to the bottom of the tin.
My final point-I wonder if the drivers he "helped" were called Smith/Jones or Higginbottom?
I think probably not.....
