Dear Crown Prosecution Service,

BACKGROUND:
Rees & Ors v Commissioner of Police for the Metropolis [2018] EWCA Civ 1587 (05 July 2018)

I refer to para 115 of the judgement: -

115. There is one final point that I would wish to make. The key question with which both Mitting J and this court have wrestled was whether or not, absent Eaton and the actions of DCS Cook, there was the necessary RPC. Considerable court and judicial resources have been expended on endeavouring to answer this question: the original trial took 3 weeks, and the appeal a full one and a half days, involving 6 counsel, including 2 QCs. And yet it is likely that the answer to that very question was contained in the contemporaneous documents relating to the original decision to charge, for which the CPS did not waive privilege.

REQUEST:
Provide the contemporaneous documents relating to the original decision to charge.

Yours faithfully,

Edward Williams
