Marcus J Ball is the crowdfunded private prosecutor who brought the case against Boris Johnson, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
The objective was to establish a precedent proving that it is illegal for elected public office holders to lie to the public. On Thursday 19th December 2019 we submitted a complaint to the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office concerning our case due to undisclosed, alleged apparent bias's on the part of the judges involved in our action. January 2020 update: The JCIO has refused to act against the judges and our intention now is to begin a new prosecution case against Boris Johnson.
Marcus is also an international speaker and writer with a passion for fighting lying in politics and also for higher education reform.
Our case is a private prosecution against Mr Boris Johnson for the alleged criminal offence of misconduct in public office. We are motivated by a desire to challenge the national problem of lying in UK politics. Brexit Justice is a not for profit ltd. company with a social aim.
The accusation is that Mr Johnson abused the public trust by lying about the UK’s spending on EU membership during the Brexit referendum.
Our case has been carefully built over more than three years of work. Mr Johnson is innocent unless proven guilty within a court of law. You can find out more about our case and what it is we're doing via our crowdfund page.
