Call the proceedings "hearings" if you prefer. Their results, if not procedures, are the same: recourse to judicial authority to decide remedy for a disputed injury.
Suspect actions of the PM and findings of law adjudicating malfeasance and criminal conduct in his capacity as a public officer are in fact subjects of three bench trials in the UK.
In fact ("skeleton outlines" a/k/a "briefs" of Applicants' pleadings) evidence submitted with political arguments to the courts to prove guilt--the responsibility for specific offense(s) by one or more suspects. Political argument is by definition the matter of laws, processes, things, and people which constitute a "civilization".
Evidence submitted in fact includes but is not limited to affidavits of witnesses and published "media" reporting. Those exhibits number in triple digits, so noted in opinions and judgment of the presiding courts. These collections may or may not include Sumption's public "suggestions" for consideration by the presiding courts to decide the truth of facts adjudicated. Itemization of all exhibits has not been published with opinions and judgment. A court decides evidence admissible or inadmissible, facts true or false according to standards of qualities established and enforced by its jurisdiction.
The UK Supreme Court has scheduled review ("trial") of those "rolled up" complaints, iirc 16 Sep.
Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
