English translation:pre-arranged / formulaic / fabricated reports
Explanation:
Hello
I <italics>think<italics> this would mean something like reports or legal proceedings that have been cynically arranged or, better, 'concocted' between those involved without overdue concern for the facts of the case, using established bureaucratic procedures and formulae, and adhering to the guiding principle of achieving the desired effect by hook or by crook. Don't take my word for it though, wait for some more legally minded person to send in a suggestion!
A bit more context would be helpful.

Regards
Derek
