star this property answer text <p>The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has robust processes for dealing with cases involving deaths in custody or in contact with police which follow the requirements of the then Attorney General's &quot;Review of the Role and Practices of the CPS in Cases Arising from a Death in Custody 2003&quot;.</p><p>All death in custody cases are dealt with by the CPS Special Crime and Counter Terrorism Division to ensure consistency of approach and that they are dealt with by lawyers with the necessary skills and experience. Only very experienced senior lawyers, who are specifically designated, are permitted to review death in custody cases. The reviews carried out by the senior lawyer in cases involving deaths in custody are examined by their line manager and then by the Head of Special Crime &amp; Counter Terrorism Division (or her Deputy). They are then submitted to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for final approval. In any case where the decision is not to proceed, unless the DPP is satisfied that it is &quot;plain beyond doubt&quot; that there is no case to answer, experienced external counsel will be instructed to advise.</p><p>The status of the specified cases is as follows:</p><p>(1) Azelle Rodney: Following the publication of the report of Sir Christopher Holland in relation to his inquiry Mr Rodney's death, the IPCC wrote to the Director of Public Prosecutions to ask that the CPS review the case. This review is underway and the CPS is working with the IPCC in order to determine whether any further investigation is required. Once the CPS is satisfied that it has received a full file, it will consider whether charges should be brought.</p><p>(2) Jimmy Mubenga: prosecutions were announced on 20 March 2014.</p><p>(3) Christopher Alder: prosecutions took place in 2002 – all defendants were acquitted.</p><p>(4) Sean Rigg: The CPS has provided investigative advice to the IPCCin relation to allegations of perjury. A charging decision has not been requested.</p><p>(5) Habib Ullah: The CPS has received a full file and is considering whether charges should be brought.</p><p>(6) Ricky Bishop: Mr Bishop died in 2001. The case has not been referred to the CPS within the last 3 years.</p><p>(7) Anthony Grainger: a prosecution was announced on 16 January 2014.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) is committed to tackling cases of female genital mutilation (FGM), however it can only prosecute cases referred to it by the police which meet both of the tests outlined in the Code for Crown Prosecutors.</p><p>The Code sets out a two stage test which must be applied when deciding whether a case should be prosecuted. The first stage is the evidential test which requires prosecutors to be satisfied that there is sufficient evidence to provide a realistic prospect of conviction. If the evidential stage of the test is met prosecutors must then go on to identify the relevant public interest factors tending for and against the prosecution in order to form an overall assessment of whether a prosecution is in the public interest.</p><p> </p> more like this

Litigation initiated by <em>The Guardian</em> newspaper has taken place over a four year period including hearings in the Upper Tribunal, the High Court, and the Court of Appeal. Eight government departments have had to work together on the Government's response, at a total cost of £274,481.16 (exc VAT). These costs encompass all costs billed by the Treasury Solicitor, including Counsels' fees and disbursements. If we are successful in the next stage of legal proceedings the Government would seek to recover a substantial proportion of these costs from the Guardian.</p><p> </p> more like this
