A telephone call came from a man who left a voicemail message on my Mobile phone. I phoned them back and requested an email on the matter. The following correspondence took place; document ToBilalMazhar(AbsoluteBarristers)10Jan2017b .docx:

Re: Your Enquiry (5) Shan Panigrahi To Bilal Mazhar 10 Jan 2017 at 14:21

Dear Mr Mazhar

Thank you for clarifying that Absolute Barrister is not accredited with providing legal aid representation. I will not need legal aid as I intend to take out a loan for your services given that I am seeking £5 million from Kent Police as compensation for its false threats to prosecute me.

Yours sincerely

Dr Shantanu Panigrahi

Hi Shan,

Unfortunately, we do not provide legal aid. If you are seeking legal aid, it would be more apt for you to get in touch with law firms who are accredited with providing legal aid representation.

Dear Mr Mazhar

1. I have asked Kent Police to provide the information that you require (see the following email). However, it seems that Kent Police are intent to charge me for more than the non-payment of the fine for a driving offence because I lodged complaints against their conduct of the investigation of my referrals of criminality and blogged about these matters here: https://shantanup.wordpress.com/.

2. What further information do you need for the Legal Aid application?

Yours sincerely

Hi Mr Panigrahi,

After a brief chat, I am emailing you, as promised, regarding the enquiry you left on our page a little earlier.

Form what I understand, it seems like you might be facing a prosecution brought by the Kent police.

Could you detail what the potential prosecution would be for.

Have you been charged with anything as of yet?

If you could summarise the potential case against you, I would be grateful.

Kind regards,

Dear Sirs

1. This email is to inform you that I have instructed my lawyers to commence court proceedings against Kent Police to sue the Force for £5 million in compensation for a false threat to prosecute me on an unspecified offence – see attached document named ToBilalMazhar(AbsoluteBarristers)10Jan2017b.docx.

2. Please let me know if you are willing to settle this matter out of court at this stage.

Yours sincerely

A reply came from Mr Bilal Mazhar to which I first telephoned and left a brief message on his voicemail and then replied:

Proceedings issued for false threat of prosecution by Kent Police (3) Shan Panigrahi To Bilal Mazhar 11 Jan 2017 at 10:41

Hello Bilal

I just telephoned you and the call went to your voicemail service where I left a brief message. My home landline number is 01634 379604 if you prefer to telephone me instead.

I do find this email a confusing because earlier you were positive that Absolute Barristers had agreed that this matter was something you would be able to be involved in.

Did you receive any contacts from Kent Police?

Hi Shan,

I think there has been a little confusion on your part.

As of yet, we have not been instructed by you. Further, in this situation, it seems more appropriate for you to seek alternative legal representation.

It is unlikely direct access to barristers is suitable for you.

Should you wish to discuss this further, do not hesitate to contact me on 020 3805 3011.

Dear Mr Mazhar

1. I telephoned your Firm this morning to speak with you in view of our correspondence during early January 2017 and your receptionist (Julie) said that your extension line was busy. She said that she will ask you to telephone me back on my Landline Number 01634 379604 and I am still waiting for your call.

2. I need action on this very urgently as I need you to contact the Supreme Court and submit your Firm’s details as my legal representative hereby instructed to act on this Case immediately.

3. Please let me know what/whether Absolute Barrister is taking any action on this matter as the delays that have been caused from your ambiguous responses in the past has severely delayed and damaged my prospects for obtaining compensation of up to £5 million lodged against Kent Police as you will note from my Blog that I sent your Firm this morning.

Yours sincerely

Dear Sir

1. Since early January 2017 I have had communications with you by email and telephone conversations with regard to court proceedings against Kent Police. You have given me ambiguous responses of your Firm’s position on the matter. After sending me a Firm’s Flyer by email soliciting further case submissions indirectly you have not returned my phone calls promptly and have not replied to my emails asking you whether you are taking any action on my Case lodged in the Supreme Court.

2. This is the final proof that not only have you failed in your statutory obligations to provide me with legal advice and legal representation in the courts by flagrant violation of your role in society in the provision of justice to citizens, you deliberately sought to protect Kent Police from the litigation and/or the prosecution that I initiated in my bid to claim up to £5 million in compensation from Kent Police.

3. Ordinarily I would have reported you to the Legal Ombudsman in a complaint but as you must be aware the Legal Ombudsman is itself the subject of criminal proceedings reported to Kent Police for its negligent-at-best failure to judge the criminality of several lawyers that I brought to its attention.

4. I light of this I am considering that the County Court needs to be tested on whether I can seek damages from Absolute Barrister for £50,000+ for not carrying out my instructions as a client after indicating to me that the matter was within the scope of the Firm’s activities and work programme in terms of pursuing my case against Kent Police.

5. You are accordingly notified that if I do not receive an explanation from you of your conduct I will consider what action to take against Absolute Barrister without further notice to you.

Yours sincerely
