Press Gang II

Here is another case worthy of comment and wider publicity. The full transcript is here.

Essentially the trial collapsed because of late service of evidence, by the CPS.

The Judge does not specify what “financial considerations” he believes lead to this decision.

If it is that the basic costs of effecting this disclosure were too high, this is deeply disturbing. It should also be born in mind that the proper, advance service of evidence, would also increase the PPE, and with it the fees payable to litigators and advocates in the case.

Either way, or both, can it really be that the CPS are acting in such a calculated and cavalier manner?
