Judge reprimanded after sending ‘racially offensive’ messages to court clerk

JUDGE'S 'RACIST MESSAGES' RAP

Isaac Maka, who oversees cases at a specialist tribunal, was the subject of a complaint to the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office

A JUDGE has been reprimanded after sending messages to a court clerk which were of a “racially offensive nature”.

Isaac Maka, who oversees cases at a specialist tribunal, was the subject of a complaint to the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office.

A JCIO spokesman said Judge Maka, who analyses disputes related to social security and child support, had sent two messages which were “intended to be humorous”.

He said Sir Ernest Ryder, the Senior President of Tribunals, and Mr Gauke had issued a formal warning.

The spokesman said: “The Senior President of Tribunals and the Lord Chancellor accepted that Judge Maka, who is himself from a black, minority ethnic background, had not intended to cause offence and does not hold inappropriate views.

“They also accepted that the judge deeply regretted his conduct and that repetition would be extremely unlikely.”
