Update.
Good news, the Chief Investigating Officer has accepted that I and The Armorial Register Limited have a personal interest and she is willing to undertake an investigation into the concern. In the meantime as the website of the Chief Herald has posted FAQs since I received my response from the learned advocate representing Heritage Malta I have been asked to provide an evidence based response to the FAQs so that she can include my response in her deliberations. I welcome the chance to provide a response to the FAQs and will work on it over the next day or so.

For those of you who are interested, here is a link to my response to the Chief Herald's FAQs, now under consideration by the Ombudsman's Chief Investigating Officer.

I doubt that the good doctor (etc etc) had any idea that his role and the legal underpinnings thereof would receive forensic examination.

Makes me rather glad I did not go ahead and register my arms there last month!

Noting your wish that any corrective legislation include a retroactive endorsement, I seem to recall that some of the discussions re: the Irish situation after the MacCarthy Mor-or-less scandal, mentioned or recommended including the phrase "for the avoidance of doubt" to avoid openly admitting that the prior grants were ultra vires. (I don't know if that phrase was actually included,)
