MALFEASANCE IN PUBLIC OFFICE

  • The offence of misconduct in public office, which has been defined as:-

    "Where a public officer is guilty of misbehaviour in office by neglecting a duty imposed upon him either at common law or by statute, he commits a misdemeanour and is liable to indictment unless another remedy is substituted by statute. The liability exists whether he is a common law or a statutory officer; and a person holding an office of important trust and of consequence to the public, under letters patent or derivatively from such authority, is liable to indictment for not faithfully discharging the office."

Alan Eastwood should authorise repayment of all the illgotten gains from these illegal Penalty Charge Notices.

Come on now, "discharge the Council's legal obligation", that's what your paid to do is it not.
