Justice Secretary 'lacking leadership' over independence of legal complaints commission

The bitter battle over who controls the 'independent' Scottish Legal Complaints Commission continues as spokesmen for the Justice Minister confirm that public sector staff from the Scottish Legal Services Ombudsman are effectively to be left in the cold on salaries and workplace opportunities.

This is in stark comparison to staff from the Law Society of Scotland who are transferring over to the 'independent' SLCC with larger salaries (up to £18,000 more) and apparently greater prospects for career advancement and promotion, and all because it seems, the Law Society of Scotland says so.

As I revealed in an earlier report on the latest round of problems to hit the Scottish Legal Complaints Commission, moves were being undertaken by the Law Society with the tacit approval of the Scottish Government's Justice Department to 'force out' staff from the former Scottish Legal Services Ombudsman's office, who have for years, investigated the way in which the Law Society of Scotland has so poorly investigated complaints against lawyers.

You can read my earlier article on this issue here : Law Society target ‘outsider staff’ for exit at Complaints Commission as lawyers undermine attempts at independent regulation

The Law Society of Scotland, frustrated by the fact there will be members of staff from the Ombudsman's office working at the new Complaints Commission, want the SLCC staffed entirely by Law Society staff, many of whom, of course, will still be members of the Law Society of Scotland itself. Hardly a fair arrangement to plant one's own staff into a new, allegedly 'independent' regulatory body, with the sole intention of undermining its independence from the very start ...

One of the main fears of the Law Society is that the former Ombudsman staff will be outwith the control of the legal profession, and most probably feel no blinding loyalty to report home on cases and investigations into crooked lawyers which are in progress .. and more worryingly for the Law Society, the former Ombudsman staff may at times be prone to blowing the whistle on whitewashes of client complaints, which have been standard at the Law Society for nearly two decades.

The Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill commented further late last week on the difficult circumstances which staff at the new Scottish Legal Complaints Commission find themselves :

Law & Courts Directorate"Staff from the Law Society of Scotland and the office of the Scottish Legal Services Ombudsman are eligible to transfer to the Commission under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations (TUPE) and the Cabinet office Statement of Practice on Staff transfers in the Public Sector (COSOP) respectively. Staff consultations are still underway in both organisations and decisions on whether or not to transfer will be taken by the staff involved once this process has been completed."

So ... while the Transfer of Undertakings (TUPE) regulations seem to be protecting the staff from the Law Society quite well .. it seems from background reports, the Ombudsman staff are being frozen out of discussions and decisions, in the hope they wont transfer over, and the Law Society can get its wicked way, stuffing the new Complaints Commission solely with its own staff !

Kenny MacAskillMr MacAskill continued : "Once the Commission is established, a harmonisation exercise will take place involving senior management and staff representatives from both former SLSO and former LSS staff who will discuss differences in employment terms and conditions and proposals for their resolution. The timing of this harmonisation is for the Commission to consider in due course."

However, with no foreseeable increases in budget .. which the SLCC will have to work within, and the rich pickings of the SLCC members at £300 plus per day of attendance, it seems unlikely there is any great wish to match the £18,000 extra which Law Society staff will be demanding from the new Commission against those public sector employees of the former Ombudsman's office.

An insider at the Scottish Government when asked for comment stated "There has been significant lobbying from the Law Society on the issue of their staff transferring to the new Commission and the Justice Department team either don't understand or don't accept the importance of having the former Ombudsman staff on board".

A good and cunning plan then, to force out the poor Ombudsman staff, and see the Law Society of Scotland gets its way, ensuring that what was to be a new broom of independence in dealing with complaints against lawyers in Scotland, is staffed and controlled by the very people who have always been dealing with complaints against lawyers, and that is .. more lawyers.

A source within the Law Society yesterday confirmed that plans were still going ahead to force out the Ombudsman staff from the new Complaints Commission, reporting to me in a stark comment : "It is being seen as vital the profession keep control over regulation of complaints at all levels in the new Commission.These Ombudsman staff cannot be trusted to tow the line if a conflict between the Law Society and the Commission arises".

So there we have it - the Law Society can't allow anyone else to handle complaints against lawyers because if such a thing were to happen ... Scotland would find out just how corrupt some solicitors have become or have always been – as some could well attest to.

However, Scotland might also find out the histories of some of the Law Society staff who intend to transfer over to the new Scottish Legal Complaints Commission, and there is no shortage in information now coming out about what some of those individuals have been up to over the years.

Indeed, the Law Society has become so concerned of revelations concerning the complaints handling records of their members of staff transferring over to the new Complaints Commission that a block has been put on naming and identifying those individuals, even by the new Commission itself.

This secretive move by the Law Society is being seen as an attempt to prevent members of the public from finding out that Law Society staff who have ruined and mishandled so many complaints in their present positions will transfer over to the new Commission with the likelihood that once in place, they will revert to the old ways of whitewashing complaints against colleagues in the legal profession, or worse still, report back to the Law Society on every case they are handling at the new ‘independent Complaints Commission.

Perhaps when clients are making complaints to the new Complaints Commission about their solicitors, they would also do well to ask about the complaints handling records of those Law Society staff who have been mishandling complaints for years in their former jobs at Drumsheugh Gardens ... and what a sordid tale of disclosure might be revealed.

So, over again to the Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill, who did of course say, he would protect the legal profession at all costs, even at the cost of public sector jobs it would seem !

Kenny MacAskill : A dangerous game of protecting the interests of the legal profession above the public interest …

How about changing that attitude, Mr MacAskill ? and giving Scots a fairer deal in the legal services market, and make sure independent regulation of legal services is exactly what it means, rather than follow the legal professions line of no independent regulation and no consumer protection from crooked lawyers ...

Being seen to do the right thing goes a long way to restoring public confidence and consumer protection … especially when it is so obviously needed as it is in the public’s dealings with the Scottish legal profession …

Can't say I'm bothered about who gets what salary but as you say its hardly fair the Law Society get to plant all their staff into this new commission.

how do we get you onto this thing Mr Cherbi.I wouldn't trust it one bit unless you were there !

Clearly self regulation - whether by the Law Society, its proxy the SLCC, or the Faculty of Advocates -must end.

It is equally obvious that Messrs Salmond, Swinney and MacAskill et al will do nothing to alter the staus quo.

It is therefore long past the time for Which Magazine, the Scottish Consumer Council and the OFT to finish what they began and insist that the Competition Commission immediately enforce all previous recommendations.

Only then will the Scottish Public receive any meaningful and proper access to the law, something long since denied them by the very profession which claims to serve and protect it.

I agree Kenny MacAskill shouldn't be letting the Law Society run the SLCC as it wants.

Really ? The Commission is weighed down with the Law Society stooges so that means Law Society staff get all they want and anyone else is out the door.

Thanks for nothing Kenny.Would you work under the same rules I wonder ?

MacAskill's explanation is stupid.Its down to him as the Justice Minister to see this Commission or quango or whatever it is really IS independent and not stuffed up by lawyers as you report.

I'm sure everyone is making a lot of money on the backs of poor people in this affair and it will be the money aspect which keeps your justice Minister from doing anything about it.

Its always about money Peter.Money lines their pockets and they want to keep it all for themselves.Stepping on anyone to get more of it is just part of their daily routine.

Exactly what does the law society have over MacAskill to make him allow such a shambles to proceed.

Clearly all respect he has ever had should now diminish.

Get out MacAskill while the going is good.

MacAskill wouldn't know independence if it jumped up and bit his face.

The salary does not matter what matters most is that the public are being fobbed off once again with no independent complaints body.

Fairness demands this and if MacAskill is not willing to go against his colleagues then he should be out on his ar-e.

I might have thought MacAskill was too out of the loop to stop this from happening but after watching your you tube clip and reading the letter for myself I feel he should intervene in this complaints quango and sort out the Law Society for trying to control it.

Good to see you report this Mr Cherbi.

Those employees from the Ombudsman's office are public sector workers.They should inform their union of these problems and make as much noise as possible with you and anyone else who is prepared to listen.

If it falls to be they feel they are being treated inequitably by the Commission they could take legal action with the help of their union to try and resolve the situation to their satisfaction.

Clearly an attempt to undermine the legislation which created the SLCC but as you have reported long ago the Law Society was always out to do this.

You will have to continue to be a thorn in the side of them to keep the rest of us up to speed on their skulduggery.

No. I would say Scotland is not a safe place to do legal business. There is effectively no regulation, no standards of service, and no safety net for clients when their litigation frequently goes wrong. I would not recommend doing legal business in Scotland at this time.

No justice in Scotland under Salmond and the SNP said...

Hi Peter

Just thought i'd update you and your readers on the outcome to my previous post - linked below this with your excellent comment.

As i say above, there is simply no justice in Scotland under Salmond (MacAskill, Sturgeon et al) and the SNP ... FACT.

Once again, here is the proof:

Newsdesk / Press Release

Thursday 21 August 2008

Please find below (and attached) an appeal to the First Minister Of Scotland, Alex Salmond MSP / MP, in relation to the very sad, tragic and appalling case of a brain injured victim whose case has been whitewashed by the Edinburgh / Scottish authorities over the past 2 decades.

But Mr Salmond still fails to take any positive action and help in any way whatsoever... some 18 months on from the first letter to his office appealing for his help and intervention, and 2 weeks on from the last letter (No.20) – which he just ignores and does nothing about.

So, theft of a family’s property, conspiring to defeat the ends of justice and a flagrant abuse of power and office by Scotland’s First Minister over the past 2 or more years in this most appalling case … and still nothing is done.

Conclusion : Do not waste your time and energies going to Alex Salmond looking for the truth, justice and reconciliation – especially if the case involves his close friends who he appointed into his Cabinet in May 2007 (in this case Kenny MacAskill MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Injustice; and Nicola Sturgeon MSP, Depute First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Health). He will do all in his abusive power to cover up the case and censor it from the wider public. FACT.

Please contact me should you require further information.

Your time and interest is appreciated.

Dear Mr Salmond,

Request for the return of confidential photographs and files from the SNP - Letter No.20 (Since 12 February 2007) Requesting Same

Further to my last three letters to you of 5 and 19 May and 23 June, I am writing to request of you once again the return of all case files documents and photographs currently being unlawfully withheld from my family by your Mr MacAskill. I have copied my last three letters to you to Mr MacAskill, but he completely ignores these requests and is obviously not prepared to release these files to my family.

Given you instructed me to contact Mr MacAskill about this very serious matter and he clearly is ignoring these requests, I can only ask of you once again to personally intervene in this very serious case of the terrible abuse, neglect and ill-treatment of my son over the past 19½ years – as I have been asking (begging and pleading with you in effect) over the past 18 months, since my first letter of 12 February 2007.

Thank you for your time and full co-operation.

I look forward to hearing from you personally in early course.

As with all previous letters to you, this letter will be copied to both your constituency office and the Scottish Parliament – and hand delivered to Bute House

[Resent Wednesday 6 August 2008 – cc: Kenny MacAskill MSP, Cabinet Secretary For Justice (By post to parliament and by hand to constituency office)]

Peter's comment:

Thanks for your comment, and yes I agree it is disgusting of someone in office to ignore or refuse to help a person suffering from a disability or illness or someone who suffers an injustice ... such people have no place in power or a right to rule over us in any moral superiority as they have none.

If Mr Salmond is troubling himself enough with the problems of Scotland to read this blog and these comments, please do the right thing and help this person.

No justice in Scotland under Alex Salmond and the SNP said...

Hi Peter

An addendum to my previous posting below this message...

I will let your readers know if Mr Salmond replies ... and if he is prepared to meet the family and / or other concerned parties at Bute House as formally requested.

It may well be that some of your readers and yourself would like to arrange some gatherings at Bute House, No.6 Charlotte Square, Edinburgh in the very near future ... to press upon Salmond that the Scottish "Justice" system under his INjustice Secretary, MacAskill, is simply not fit for purpose and is miserably failing 5 million ordinary Scots under their charge.

I certainly have no fear of going to Bute House any day, any time, to have a word or two with Mr Salmond about the many injustices in Scotland today ... under HIS INjustice Secretary, MacAskill, HIS appointed Lord Advocate, Angiolini, and HIS (mis)ruling SNP administration...

Let me know if any of your readers are willing to take up my suggestion (which i also suggested on your blog last year!) and we can arrange a gathering of the many victims of the Scottish INjustice system (under MacAskill's biased, dubious and unjust stewardship) at Bute House at the earliest opportunity.

No doubt i'll hear from you Peter.

All good wishes to you and yours.

Aye,
