Malkulpa is the name of the legal practice based in St Peter Port, Guernsey. Its name is an Experanto word that literally translated to un-guilty (or not guilty, more accurately, since ‘kulpa’ means guilty, and to denote an opposite in Esperanto you add ‘mal’ to the front. Thus, while ‘sana’ means healthy, ‘malsana’ means unwell). When first discussed in the meeting at Interpol headquarters, some of the delegates inaccurately state that it means innocent. Remus Carey corrects them on that point.
Is is run out of a small office on the sea front in Candie Hall, which used to be a religious meeting house. The main thrust of their business is running the appeals of prisoners whose genetic make-up matches that of the larger consortium’s clients, who are waiting for organ transplants.
