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

In 2010, BAE Systems plc agreed to make a £29.5 million payment for the benefit of the people of Tanzania, following a settlement with the SFO and the US Department of Justice.

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.
