High Court trial deserted due to Crown 'oppression'

Trial of man accused of historical child sex offences deserted due to Crown ‘oppression’

Lord Uist-

[10]      In my opinion the first question which I must consider in this case is whether there has been oppression on the part of the Crown. I am in no doubt that there has been. The advocate depute, as I have already said, accepted that, in general, it was oppression for the Crown to include in an indictment allegations for which there is no evidential basis, while at the same time contending that there had been no oppression in this case. I do not see how it can be maintained that there has not been oppression in this case.

Disgraceful from the Crown office David.

In this day and age where sexual crimes have arguably become political crimes I wonder if anybody else has become victims of an overzealous crown who will clearly do anything for a conviction like add groundless allegations into an indicment. Forum Index -> Test Forum 1
