British Justice. Whatever happened to it?
How times have changed. Was it really less than 3 years since Vinod Puri was convicted on seven counts of fraud for falsely claiming to be NRPSI? The sentence was seven months imprisonment and a fine of almost £19,000. PC Max Conner said: "Mr Puri had prevented genuine registered interpreters doing their job." Since then, Capita has supplied to the Courts - on at least 6,000 occasions that we know about - unqualified linguists masquerading as genuine bona-fide interpreters.
What punishment has Capita suffered? No one has gone to prison, and the financial penalty amounts to a miserly £53,000, which is more than offset by the £390,000 annual 'must try harder' bonus-for-failure contract variation agreed by the MoJ. All of which proves that there is one law for the rich and another for the poor, and that the punishment doesn't always fit the crime.
