Absolutely shocking incompetence on the part of the police. You know you’ve gone badly wrong if even the prosecution barrister is criticising you.

Lying is likely to be an offence, being mistaken is not, it’s rare for two witnesses to an event to give identical versions of events yet mostly none are lying.

In other totally non-shocking news, in a BBC survey 97% of solicitors and barristers practising in criminal law have experienced disclosure failures in the last year. Why does anyone involved in the criminal justice system find this surprising?

In other news, the Pope confirmed he’s catholic.

Might be worth an email to the office of the DPP, then, since they may also be in denial about that fact. smile.gif

I wonder if Liam Allan and many others Dna/fingerprints and photo will be removed from the Police national database. An interesting result from ECHR,
The European Court of Human Rights (First Section), sitting on 6 February 2018
FACTS AND PROCEDURE
1. The applicant, Mr Michael Gare-Simmons, is a British national, who was born in London and lives in Gerona, Spain.
2. The United Kingdom Government (“the Government”) were represented by their Agent, Ms Verity Robson of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
3. The applicant was arrested on 18 May 2011 on suspicion of sexual assault on an adult male. On arrest, his DNA, fingerprints, and photograph were taken and retained on the relevant, state databases. The applicant was later released without charge.
4. The applicant complained under Article 8 of the Convention about the retention of his biometric data and his photograph. On 1 December 2017 and 4 December 2017 the Court received friendly settlement declarations signed by the parties.
5. In the friendly settlement declaration the government confirmed that the applicant’s biometric data (namely his DNA sample, DNA profile and fingerprints) were deleted on 1 October 2014 at the latest, and that his photograph was deleted on 11 May 2017 at the latest.
6. The applicant agreed to waive any further claims against the United Kingdom in respect of the facts giving rise to this application against an undertaking by the Government to pay him EUR 500 (Five hundred euros) to cover any and all costs and expenses, plus any tax that may be chargeable to him, which will be converted into pounds sterling at the rate applicable on the date of payment, and will be payable within three months from the date of notification of the decision taken by the Court. In the event of failure to pay this sum within the said three-month period, the Government undertook to pay simple interest on it, from the expiry of that period until settlement, at a rate equal to the marginal lending rate of the European Central Bank during the default period plus three percentage points. The payment will constitute the final resolution of the case.

Part 1 of POFA is relevant to that.

Interesting panorama programme on this subject - Alison Saunders still refusing to remove her head from that bucket of sand.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0b22...ng-a-fair-trial


The appeal court decision from the first (Danny Kay) case mentioned

http://www.bailii.org/ entry

If reading that it’s worth noting that the defendants computer and phone had been taken by the police and not returned until some time after the trial, quite why the defence didn’t make more effort to get them earlier is unknown.
