Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Crown Prosecution Service,

Under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act, I request information on CPS guidance as to whether a duty falls upon the Crown Prosecution Service to investigate a case and prepare an indictment for prosecution where, in an area of government or official decision making, there is strong evidence that all criteria have been met of an offence having been committed under the common law crime of 'misconduct in public office' .

As a second part of this request, I ask not for disclosure but for confirmation of whether the CPS has started considering and/or preparing an indictment against former Prime Minister, Tony Blair, over decision making he was involved in in taking the UK into a war with Iraq in 2003.

Yours faithfully,

christopher lamb

Freedom of Information Unit, Crown Prosecution Service
