Re ED

Power of attorney – Enduring power of attorney. The Court of Protection ordered that an enduring power of attorney (EPA) be revoked, pursuant to para 16(4)(g) of Sch 4 to the Mental Capacity Act 2005, directed the Public Guardian to cancel its registration and appointed a panel deputy. The orders were made in circumstances where the court found that, when the first respondent attorney, JD, had applied to register the EPA, she had completed a form, in which she had stated that the attorneys had been appointed to act jointly and severally, and she had known that that statement was false. Further, both respondents were both unsuitable to be attorneys and deputies for property and affairs, because of the intense acrimony between them.
