The CPS have yet again delayed in the case of Bullock, Crampton, Isley and Weedon. All four were implicated in elements of the Stephen Lawrence murder and its mishandling. The strategy appears to be either to bleed dry any opponent or engage in a war of attrition.
Justice delayed is justice denied. The NCA had the papers for two years.
The CPS claim that their lawyer is off with a “long term illness”. Odd, that on a budget of £663 million per annum they cannot find another. Or, could it be, as with the Daniel Morgan murder debacle, that it is not so much a matter of supposed national security, as one of national embarrassment?
On the subject of unnecessary delays, what of adequate compensation and Jonathan Rees, plus others?
