Nine people have been charged as part of a major police investigation into corruption and bribery at a court.

The group, all from Newham, were charged and bailed this month alongside 12 others for perverting the course of justice as a result of the Met’s Operation Teemin investigation into Barkingside Magistrates’ Court.

They are due to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

The investigation was launched after an allegation of corruption was made by a reporter at a national newspaper in August 2011.

Two people have also been charged with misconduct in a public office.

Munir Patel, 24 of Green Lane, Dagenham was imprisoned for six years for misconduct in public office, perverting the course of justice and bribery as a result of the operation.

He pleaded guilty and was sentenced at Southwark Magistrates Court in November 2011.

Charged:

• Mukhtar Patel, 26, of East Avenue, East Ham

• Haroon Hussain, 28, of Elizabeth Road, Upton Park

• Raja Humza Khan, 22, of Kitchener Road, Forest Gate

• Zaen Ali, 25, of Halley Road, Forest Gate

• Vasim Makan, 23, of East Road, Plaistow

• Suhail Patel, 25, of Plashet Grove, Upton Park

• Bilal Mahmood, 22, of Trevilyan Road, Stratford

• Zhaker Darvesh, 23, of Eversleigh Road, Upton Park

• Mubarak Patel, 25, of Colgrave Road, Stratford
