Prevarications and Machinations at the High Court


The following correspondence took place on the Claim as described in the following two blogposts: https://shantanup.wordpress.com/2017/05/11/progress-of-n1-claim-form-through-queens-bench-division-of-high-court/ and https://shantanup.wordpress.com/2017/06/03/letter-sent-to-the-labour-party-concerning-my-resignation-from-the-labour-party/

FW: High Court Claim Number HQ17X01773 – Mr Panigrahi v Kent Police (6) Shan Panigrahi To QB Issue & Enquiries CC QB Enforcement Section 15 June 2017 at 13:53

Dear Ms Pat Moore

1. Thank you for sending my Request for Judgment Slip to the Enforcement Section whom I contacted yesterday by email but there was no answer.

2. From that lack of reply from the Enforcement Section it seems that Master Eastman has to first declare a verdict on this Case on whether my Claim has been approved by him and if so who are the defendants against whom the damages and compensation should be awarded and how it should be apportioned. It is only after this stage that the Enforcement Section can take any action on the amount of compensation and damages that I would be entitled to and from which Party.

3. In this regard please let me know if there will be a Hearing to consider the Legal Ombudsman’s submissions and whether it will be required to give evidence as a willing witness for the purposes of the Court.

Yours sincerely

Dr Shantanu Panigrahi

Dear Sirs

1. Thank you for your very informative email which is highly appreciated.

2. I wish to confirm what I have said to you in the past that you are not a Defendant but a willing respondent (the other four respondents were not so willing and their time to respond has elapsed).

3. You have provided all the information that I needed on defending the Legal Ombudsman’s position to further my Claim. In this regard, the ambiguity of your defence was pointed out to the Court. As such you are no longer required to be a witness to my Claim and you are accordingly discharged from this duty to the State.

4. It is for these reasons that I am re-submitting herewith my Request for Judgment Slip (see scanned copy attached) the contents of which should be self-explanatory, but if you require any further clarification please do not hesitate to contact me again.

Yours sincerely

Dear Sir/Madam

We write on behalf of the Legal Ombudsman. We note that we are referred to in Mr Panigrahi’s particulars of claim but are not named as a Defendant. We have since confirmed with Naz and Michelle in Enquiries at the High Court that the Legal Ombudsman is not listed on the court system as a Defendant. The Claimant has also confirmed that the Legal Ombudsman is not a Defendant in his email below dated 31 May 2017.

The Legal Ombudsman has since received a further email from the Claimant (attached dated 12 June 2017) referring to the Legal Ombudsman as a Respondent and stating that the Court informing the Claimant that he is serving a response pack and providing a link to the N9 response pack.

However as the Court and Claimant have separately confirmed that the Legal Ombudsman is not a Defendant, the Legal Ombudsman will not be responding to the claim.

It is noted that the Claimant has also requested that the Legal Ombudsman participate as a witness in the claim. We can confirm that the Legal Ombudsman would not be a witness in proceedings as the purpose of the ombudsman scheme is to resolve complaints between consumers and service providers in respect of legal services provided to the consumer. If the Court did however require the ombudsman to be witness then of course we would be obliged to.

We would be grateful if this email and attached email and documents are placed on the court file.

Yours faithfully

Dear Elizabeth Smith

1. Thank you for acknowledging receipt of my Claim Form and Elaborated Particulars of Claim.

2. The Court official you spoke with is absolutely right in that this Claim is against Kent Police with four other respondents required to give evidence in support of the Claim. They do not have to give evidence but it would be helpful to the course of the proceedings if they did if justice is to be served. As things stand, in the United Kingdom respondents cannot be ordered by the Court to give evidence in civil proceedings. For this reason Kent Police was negligent in not investigating my complaint of a crime being committed by the Legal Ombudsman in dealing with my complaints against several lawyers that were brought to its attention. I expect that the Court will make an award of £5 million as damages and compensation against Kent Police as my Claim Form requires.

2. As regards taking action against the Legal Ombudsman is concerned I tried to institute private prosecution against the Legal Ombudsman for its cirmes but this did not get anywhere. I take your point that the email that I sent does not constitute effective service on a defendant as set out in Part 7 of the Civil Procedure Rules as these documents must be accompanied by forms for defending and admitting the Claim and acknowledging service as specified therin.

3. I also take note of your address for service and will send any future documents to this address.

4. In the meantime please advise me if your Client (The Legal Ombudsman) is going to complete the investigation of the following complaint: Legal Ombudsman- FIR- CMP-058960 ABC:00612001 5. Thank you for your patience as a respondent party to these proceedings.

Yours sincerely

Dear Sirs

Your email of 28 May 2017 regarding High Court Claim Number HQ17X01773

We write on behalf of the Legal Ombudsman in respect of the above matter.

We are in receipt of your email of 28 May 2017, which purports to serve the Legal Ombudsman with a Claim form and Particulars of a Claim in relation to which you say the Legal Ombudsman is a Defendant. Having spoken to the Court today, we have been advised that Claim number HQ17X01773 has been issued against Kent Police only, and that the Legal Ombudsman is not currently listed as a Defendant to the same. We are therefore under no obligation to respond to your claim unless and until we are added by the Court as a party to these proceedings.

We also note that service of the Claim form and Particulars of Claim alone does not constitute effective service as set out in Part 7 of the Civil Procedures Rules, as these must be accompanied by forms for defending and admitting the claim, and acknowledging service, as specified therein.

We take this opportunity to advise that the Legal Ombudsman does not accept service by email, and that our address for service is as follows:

Dear Sir

1. The Court was supposed to have notified both me and the defendant of any steps that we should take to prepare for the hearing at which the court will decide what amount I am entitled to. Two days have gone by and I have not heard from you to the 12 June 2017 Request for Judgment that I submitted by email as attached.

2. Notwithstanding, please let me know now if a Hearing is still necessary given that there was no reply at all from the Defendant.

3. I have said in the past to the Court that I should be entitled to the full £5 million that I had originally demanded in my tentative Claim Form in view of the co-conspirators engaged as agents of the State-persecution that I have suffered. Further, £100,000 is no longer sufficient in view of the additional work and suffering I have had to do/undergo to bring this matter up for Enforcement.

4. In your reply please also let me know the Appeal process if I am not satisfied with the outcome of Enforcement.

Dear Dr Panigrahi

Thank you for contacting the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC). We acknowledge receipt of your email dated 9 June 2017, the contents of which have been noted.

The IPCC is completely independent of the police service and is responsible for making sure that the police complaints system in England and Wales works effectively and fairly.

Consequently, unless you wish to make a complaint regarding the conduct of any serving member of the police force, I do not feel that the IPCC can assist you further in this matter.

Dear Sir/Madam

1. I have still not received the 16 June 2017 Order from Master Eastman in the post which I need to Appeal at the Court of Appeal along with the subsequent Order dated 16 June 2017 from the High Court to strike out my Case for the reasons given below.

2. Please advise me on the current state of this Case.

Dear Sir

1. You say that my Case was struck out after an Order was made by Master Eastman on 16 June 2017. I suggest most humbly that this is not an appropriate action by the Court.

2. Accordingly, the Court is requested to recognise that a Case where money is being demanded as part of the litigation cannot be struck out for any reason whatsoever once a Request for Judgment Slip has been filed following the expiry of the 14 days response period during which there had been no proper acknowledgement of service nor a full defence from any of the five respondents (namely Kent Police as the Main Defendant against whom the Damages and Compensation Order should have been made, plus its four named co-conspirators as minor defendants). The Case could not be struck out on 16 June 2017 because doing so on the court’s own initiative represents retrospective action after due process to serve Claim documents according to the courts explicit directions were implemented so that it could not have been due to an abuse of the process of court or for a defective Claim/statement of Case. The Request for Judgement Slip was filed on 12 June 2017 once it was clear that the respondents were uncooperative and were waiting for the Case to be stayed. If the Case was to be struck out on the court’s own initiative, it was necessary for the Court to do so prior to 12 June 2017 and after giving prior notification to the Applicant that this was being contemplated.

3. Please consider my Appeal without delay bearing in mind that I am still on 100 per cent Fee Remission for any Fee that may be necessary.

Yours sincerely
