The overlap of wrongful acts

KEY
Green circle Mal = an act of maladministration, a wrongful act by a public authority - examples, not taking your legal and/or human rights into account, delay, administrative errors etc.

Blue circle Crim = a criminal act, a criminal act by anybody (includes a public authority) - examples, intimidation, harassment, theft etc. (Note, when carried out a public Authority - human rights infringements are included)

Red circle Civ = a civil wrong, a civil wrong by anybody (including a public authority) - examples, trespass, negligence, nuisance, interference with your right of way. (Note, when carried out a public Authority - human rights infringements also included.)

Whilst Local Government Ombudsmen may be able to manipulate the definition of maladministration (the solid green bit) to reduce the number of complaints they have to identify as acts of maladministration fortunately they cannot tinker those that are also illegal (the overlap bits in white/black).

Example: If the council interfere with your right of way they are guilty of a legal wrong , infringing your human rights and maladministration all at the same time.

Please refer to my previous post.
