Independent Complaints Review Service

for the Solicitor’s Regulation Authority (SRA) - Enquiry


Good morning,

Thank you for your email and enquiry to the Independent Complaints Review Scheme.

Please note the following for the stages of the complaints process:

Stage 1 requires you to make a formal complaint, where you would receive a response from the unit where the complaint arose.

Stage 2 will occur if you are unhappy with the Stage 1 response. Your complaint will then be referred to the SRA’s central Complaints Team.

The SRA central Complaints Team must write to you to confirm that you have exhausted their internal complaints procedure and that Stage 2 has been completed, before you would be able to make your application to use our service.

Stage 3 is the Independent Complaints Review.

As part of the process, we have to contact the SRA to get confirmation that you have completed Stages 1 and 2. Please note this can take upto 5 working days, once we receive their response, we will contact you to advise of the next steps.

In the meantime please review our Guidance Notes which I have attached to this email and are also available to view on our website at: https://www.cedr.com/consumer/solicitors/

We hope this is of assistance and we will be in contact shortly.

Kind regards,

Shannell

Dear Sir/Madam

I disagree with this report, you so need to start afresh and not so much concentrate on producing a report for my consumption or for the Court's consumption but for the Public Enquiry: PUBLIC ENQUIRY PROCESS COMMENCED: IOPC Reference - 2022/173746 (knowledgeassessmentanddissemination.com) https://www.knowledgeassessmentanddissemination.com/post/public-enquiry-process-commenced-iopc-reference-2022-173746 The entire report is a whitewash cover-up of State-engineered Hate crime against me, a law-abiding citizen for being a Republican of sorts in that I think the Monarch should be subjected to a referendum for continuing as Head of State once every 15 years. So the State has victimised, terrorised, persecuted, and obstructed justice with me a second class citizen. They tried everything, stuck me in a mental hospital twice, tried to make me stateless, and impoverished me with only pension to live on with no scope for employment and when I stayed put knowing that they could not take away my British passport according to international conventions so that I am free to go on holidays and return back to the United Kingdom with my occupational pension soon to be supplemented with State pension in August, they Cyber attacked me with 500 criminal anonymous emails to me and my family both here and in India to try and destroy our lives mentally and physically. So the cyber-attacks were not trolls, Victims of Panigrahi Association (VOPA) does not exist but was concocted by the Security Services secretly to send malicious emails from my email account as a pretext to getting Kent Police to arrest me on 4 occasions and a 5th one that was coerced invitation. to charge me with offences with the complicity of North Kent Magistrates Court especially. All my protestations in issuing litigation against the Prime Minister, the University of Greenwich, taking the matter to the International Criminal Court came to nothing, such is the power of the State. But I survived. There is no resolution: A Republican is an outcast of the society in the United Kingdom.


Please do not reply to this email. This statement is just for the record.


Yours sincerely

Independent Complaints Review Service for the Solicitors Regulation Authority

Application form

Please read this carefully before completing the application form


The role of the Independent Complaints Review Service for the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA)

is to review the way in which the SRA has responded to complaints made by any member of the

public who has been affected by the actions or decisions of the SRA, provided that the complainant

has first exhausted the SRA's internal complaints procedure.

The Service can review whether: the investigation was thorough and fair, that all relevant facts were

taken into account, that the conclusions reached (in respect of complaints about the service

provided by the SRA) were reasonable and properly explained; and that the investigation was

handled efficiently and without unnecessary delay.

The Service is independent of the SRA and whilst it cannot overturn any regulatory judgements or

decisions made by the SRA, it may offer an independent view on complaints and provide

recommendations, advice and guidance to the SRA in relation to specific complaints and more

generally to help it to achieve best practice in complaints handling procedures. The SRA does not

have to comply with the reviewers' recommendations but, if it does not comply, it must provide its

reasons for not doing so.

If you require assistance in completing this form please contact the Service on 020 7520 3800 or

refer to our website for further details.

Independent Complaints Review Service for the

Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA)

Guidance Note for Consumers

The Independent Complaints Review Service (ICRS), operated by CEDR Services, forms part of the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA’s) approach to handling complaints about the SRA’s work. We also provide independent oversight of the way that the SRA carries out its complaints handling functions – we do this by conducting an independent audit of SRA’s complaints handling.

The Complaints Review Service is solely for complaints against the (SRA). If you are looking to further a complaint about a particular Solicitor / Firm, the service would not be suitable and we will not assess your complaint.

To use the service, you must first exhaust the SRA’s internal two stage complaints procedure. Should you remain unhappy after the second stage, and would like to complain about the SRA; you need to come within 20 working days of the date of their response letter.

For those cases that the Independent Complaints Reviewer decides are appropriate for review, he or she will conduct a review of the papers to consider whether:

• The investigation was thorough and fair

• All the relevant facts were taken into account

• The conclusions reached (in respect of complaints about the service provided by the SRA) were reasonable and properly explained; and

• The investigation was handled efficiently, without unnecessary delay.

Process

To use the service, you must first exhaust the SRA’s internal two stage complaints procedure. Should you remain unhappy after the second stage, and would like to complain about the SRA; you need to come to CEDR within 20 working days of the date of their response letter.

Once we receive all the information from yourself, it is sent to the SRA, with responses sent directly to the ICR, who will issue a final written response within a further 25 working days. Please note, that in some instances, the response may not be available until after 30 working days.

Once a final written response is published, the matter isclosed with no appeals or reviews under any circumstances. The ICR does not speak to either party and their response is provided in writing only.

Recommendations

Where a complaint has been upheld or partially upheld by the Independent Complaints Reviewer, they will provide an explanation for any poor service and may require the SRA to provide one or more of the following remedies:

• An apology

• Appropriate action to rectify the situation for the complainant, such as an extension of time to respond to a deadline

• Appropriate action to improve the SRA's practices or procedures

• An ex-gratia payment made in line with SRA's special payments guidance.

* Please note that the SRA are able to accept or reject any and all recommendations made by the ICR and we will not be able to intervene.

Complaints we cannot deal with

This service is not suitable for the following:

• Complaints that have not completed the SRA’s two stage complaints procedure • Complaints against anyone other than the SRA

• Complaints deemed to be out of scope by the ICRS.

• Please note, that CEDR will remain impartial throughout and can only give advice on the application process.
