Denial of Justice to the poor

This petition had 9 supporters

South Australian supreme court refuses to waive court fees to 72 year old age pensioner with no assets or other income than the age pension. Registrar insists that his 80 year old wife be a nominated as an associated person who could be expected to pay the court fees. She has refused and submitted affidavits refusing to be held responsible for the court costs incurred by her husband, as her only income is the age pension. We often hear of family and people taking advantage of the elderly particularly with regards to finance and guarantees. The action of forcing the elderly to sign guarantees against their will is abhorrent, even more so when it is the South Australian Supreme Court Registrar that is the offender. The Registrar has delayed my appeal for almost three years and has refused to grant the waiver of court fees.

Please sign my petition to the Chief Justice to order the court Registrar to waiver the court fees. Thank you, justice delayed is justice denied.
