Operation TRIASSIC

sarah laws made this Freedom of Information request to Crown Prosecution Service

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Crown Prosecution Service,

I have been reading about abandoned and thrown out cases. Why was the CPS not able to provide any evidence to Southwark Crown Court in relation to the several prosecutions prepared in Operation Triassic, over a 2-3 year period?

What made the sitting Judge allegedly describe the prosecution of the case as 'scandalous'?

What was the cost to the CPS and to the public purse of operation triassic?

It is alleged that operation triassic was initiated and progressed by a partisan private body, the Insurance Fraud Bureau in partnership with the London Police. IF this is true what assessment of the risks of pursuing a prosecution following such possibly prejudicial collaboration , has the CPS performed?

Will you share this assessment with the public?

Will the Insurance Fraud Bureau be obliged to pay the compensation costs arising out of operation Triassic?

Research on the IFB website describes current live joint operations with police forces up and down the country? Are the CPS involved in any of these?

Have any indemnities been obtained from the IFB to protect the public purse from adverse costs or compensations awards were any of the current live cases later to be thrown out by a crown court judge?

The IFB website describes their current joint strategy with police forces as being to disrupt 'professional facilitators' without defining any specific criminal activity by such 'professional facilitators'. WILL the CPS be seeking details from the IFB on this matter to prevent further attempts by the IFB to misunderstand or miscarry justice?

Yours faithfully,
