OK, thank you for your response. I will review the relevant information and laws and will get back to you at the earliest opportunity. There is no need to wait here as you will receive an email when I have responded. Also, please do not responded to this message as it will just push your question to the back of the queue and you may experience unnecessary delays. Thank you.
Many thanks for your patience. if someone has lied to the courts (including tribunal) about their capital and in tur have made a false claim to avoid having to pay court fees then that could amount to fraud and the person could face criminal charges. What penalties she could face are really for the criminal courts to determine but these could be a fine or a more serious sentence like community service or in the worst case – imprisonment. The key is that this is likely to be fraud and when making the application the person would have signed the statement of truth confirming that they understand a false application would amount to fraud and that they could potentially face criminal charges as a result. You can therefore bring this to the attention of the tribunal and the police should you wish to do so.
I hope this has answered your query. I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating by selecting 3, 4 or 5 stars - this is an important part of our process and recognises the time I have spent assisting you. If you still need me to clarify anything else, please get back to me on here and I will assist further as best as I can. Thank you
that is a possibility but what you have to remember is that the fact they may have lied about the fee remission does not mean they have lied about the claim - everyone is entitled to justice, even if they have wronged previously. So they will get their punishment in respect of the alleged fraud but that does not mean they should also be penalised in the claim being struck out. So all you can do is mention the fraud to the tribunal, they then make the decision on whether they will allow the claim to continue
If your original question has been answered I would be grateful if you could please quickly rate my answer by selecting 3, 4 or 5 starts at the top of the page - it only takes a second to do and is an important part of our process. I can still answer follow up questions afterwards if needed. Thank you
