A complaint has been recorded against His Honour Judge Seys Llewellyn QC who, as was reported by the WireNews Agency recently, had been asked to recuse himself by two claimants in a long-running lawsuit against the Ministry of Justice, the Chief Constable of the South Wales Police, the Home Office/UKBA and recently, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

The complaint has been filed with the Judicial Conduct and Investigations Office (JCIO), which took over the responsibilities of the Office for Judicial Complaints (OJC) on the 1st October 2013.

Allegations recorded with the JCIO against Llewellyn include conflict of interest that have impacted upon the judges ability to fairly adjudicate the matter before the Court, failure to act on reasonable requests by the Claimants and unnecessary and unexplained delays that give rise to the question whether there has been ongoing ex-parte communications between Llewellyn and the Defendants in the case.

If the complaint is upheld the JCIO will publish details of the penalty (if any) levelled against Llewellyn on their website at http://judicialconduct.judiciary.gov.uk/816.htm. Disciplinary statements are retained on the JCIO website for one year where the disciplinary penalty is other than removal and for five years where the Judicial Office Holder is removed from office.
