Mrs Justice Collins Rice:
"I am sure that [Mr Ukiwa] deliberately and in an attempt to deceive the court and his wife wrongly stated that the wife's address was [… Peckham …], knowing that the wife had no connection with that address, and that someone else at that address would complete and return the acknowledgment of service with the intention of obtaining a divorce fraudulently."
The Tribunal Proceedings
In proceedings before a Disciplinary Tribunal which involve the decision of a court or tribunal in previous proceedings to which the respondent was a party … the following regulations shall apply:
4. The judgment of any civil court … may be proved by producing an official copy of the judgment or order, and the findings of fact upon which that judgment or order was based shall be proof of those facts, unless proved to be inaccurate.
"although some of the findings of fact on which [HHJ Karp's] judgment was based were flawed, the conclusion was not, and the burden on the balance of probabilities passes to the respondent to prove it to have been inaccurate. He has failed to do so."
