F.A.C.T Families Against Court of Protection Theft is an organisation of those who have had problems dealing with the Court of Protection (CoP) and Office of Public Guardian (OPG) and are based in the UK. There has been 15,735 recorded complaints of abuse, fraud and corruption from Dec 2001- Dec 2010 (9 years) of the CoP and OPG in the UK.

There are over 50,000 people plus their families affected by these abuses of the Court of Protection, Office of Public Guardian and the
Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS)
jurisdiction which is also part of the Court of Protection and many young adults who may have autism or aspergers have been wrongfully put under this jurisdiction depriving them from their liberties. Some people would most definitely dispute that these disorders should not even come under Mental Health and whether these young adults are even a threat to anyone.

The Court of Protection and the Office of Public Guardian are a Government run Court used to based in Archway Tower, Archway, London now currently residing at the Royal Courts of Justice, 
Thomas More Building The Strand London, WC2A 2LL. It deals with property, financial affairs and personal welfare of people who lack mental capacity or who are unable to make decisions for themselves. Those deemed to lack capacity are many Elderly people who may suffer from Dementia, Alzheimer's Disease, Disabled People, Road Accident victims awarded compensation and even young adults who maybe Autistic or suffer from Asperger's Syndrome.

The Court of Protection and Office of Public Guardian are responsible for determining disputes as to the registration of Enduring Powers of Attorney, and Lasting Powers of Attorney, appointing new trustees, authorising certain gifts and making statutory wills.

However we are very concerned with the way it is run and from recent press such as
1.Daily Mail talks about abuses within the CoP and 2.Guardian 2005 talks about mishandling finances and 97 people having to be compensated for "bad investments and lost cash", they mean FRAUD, it shows how the CoP has been open to corruption, fraud and abuse in legal terms understood as embezzlement.

As well as
police corruption shown by Hoddesdon/Hertford police force as they protect the corrupt, accept bribes and even come to court and lie on Oath. Not to also mention corruption by all those we have reported to and are doing absolutely nothing. This includes SRA, Legal Ombudsman, Parliamentary Ombudsman, all our MPs, House of Lords and all our police forces. It is beyond a national DISGRACE!
