First killer clowns, now this
The Royal Courts of Justice has fallen victim to some really creepy graffiti.
On Friday, lawyers, court users and passers-by were surprised to see a generous coating of spray paint on the side of the iconic building, which houses the High Court. This graffiti read “Accept Bribe All the time” (sic) and “if you dont pay we will Kill you” (sic again).

These scribbles were cleaned off over the weekend, but now more unsettling messages have appeared.
One says “they cheat this is a circle only they pay doctors”, just along from a message reading “they invent new things”.
Another longer piece says:
they pay judges they are paying Doctors they are fabricating evidence they stop me to have solicitor
One piece reads:
they are sharks they pay judges circle of lies, they are fabricating evidence
On another wall, the graffitist has written:
i need my information
Having chatted to a spokesperson for Her Majesty’s Courts & Tribunals Service this morning, Legal Cheek can confirm there is currently a live police investigation into this matter.
