Human Rights Act

Max Kerley made this Freedom of Information request to Crown Prosecution Service This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

Waiting for an internal review by Crown Prosecution Service of their handling of this request.

Dear Crown Prosecution Service,

I would like to request information regarding cases that get thrown out because witnesses fail to tun up for blatantly false reasons that are even substantiated by the CPS prosecuter.

What crime(s) are the witnesses guilty of?

When a case is dropped and the court dismiss the case, is the court guilty of violating Article 6 of the HRA, by failing in it's duty to ensure that the witnesses are brought before the court to be cross examined? By denying a defendent the right to fair trial, does this not look extremely bad upon the justice system of the U.K?

When it comes to trying to prosecute someone and the above violations take place by the court and the witnesses, if the CPS prosectuer is aware of this and fails to address this, what action do you take against them and what crime are they then themselves guilty of?

It would seem to me, that someone who is there to prosecute and allows crimes to be ignored, is a serious breach of a persons rights and damages the publics trust.

Are your cases for prosecution politicaly based or chosen dependent upon portraying false crime figures?

Also, if a complaint is made, under what criteria would you ignore it and refuse to investigate?

Yours faithfully,

Max Kerley

Freedom of Information Act 2000 Request – Ref: 7126

Dear Crown Prosecution Service,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Crown Prosecution Service's handling of my FOI request 'Human Rights Act'.

I would like to request information regarding cases that get thrown out because witnesses fail to turn up for blatantly false reasons that are even substantiated by the CPS prosecutor.

1.What crime(s) are the witnesses guilty of? The excuse given by yourselves is laughable and a clear display of the CPS incompetence and outright wilful negligence. When prosecution witnessess wilfully lie to the court and the CPS further substantiate those lies and take no action and the court then take no further action and fail to offer a fair trail to the accused and then you claim that you are not obliged to create new infomration. In other words, you are more than aware of the seriousness of these criminal actions and are publicly refusing to answer to these, to avoid any legal repercusions to your gross misconduct.

2.When a case is dropped and the court dismiss the case, is the court guilty of violating Article 6 of the HRA, by failing in its duty to ensure that the witnesses are brought before the court to be cross examined? By denying a defendant the right to fair trial, does this not look extremely bad upon the justice system of the U.K?

I do not need to ask the court. The court has the responsibility to have witnessess brought before the court. In failing to do so, it denies the defendent a right to a fair trial. if the CPS Prosecutor also supports this by not requesting a summons for the witnessess, they themselves are also guilty.

3.When it comes to trying to prosecute someone and the above violations take place by the court and the witnesses, if the CPS prosecutor is aware of this and fails to address this, what action do you take against them and what crime are they then themselves guilty of?

See above.

It would seem to me, that someone who is there to prosecute and allows crimes to be ignored, is a serious breach of a person’s rights and damages the publics trust.

4.Are your cases for prosecution politically based or chosen dependent upon portraying false crime figures?

5.Also, if a complaint is made, under what criteria would you ignore it and refuse to investigate? I have asked you to respond directly.

My interests stem from coming across details of someones website, who is clearly and rightfully disgusted and from the information supplied, the CPS is guilty of a variety of criminal offences and malpractice.

As the responses here are already idicative of deflection and wilful misrepresentation, I'd say that it is in the best interests of the CPS to cease it's public display of lies and deceit.

Dear Crown Prosecution Service,

I am writing to request an internal review of Crown Prosecution Service's handling of my FOI request 'Human Rights Act'.

You claim that you do not give legal advice, but are a legal service? That's somewhat of a contradiction.

I have evidence of misconduct by the CPS and I would like to know whom I should direct it too. It has been made public already and I wish to assist in the CPS being prosecuted.
