A rather uncasual approach to prosecution
No decent, upstanding person would, of course, read anything into the apparent preponderance of South Asian names in the CPS hierarchy, as exemplified by the CU post and indeed suggested anecdotally by my wider reading. I am, however, minded of this organization, the National Black Crown Prosecution Association, an officially recognized representative body, among whose aims are
WE SEEK TO:
- Challenge racism within the CPS and wider Criminal Justice System (CJS)
- Educate on issues of racism, and
- Change the culture of the CPS and the wider CJS for the benefit of the communities we serve
"We seek to change the culture of the Crown Prosecution Service and the wider Criminal Justice System for the benefit of the communities we serve."
Interesting, I'd not heard of that one.
So, have I got this right ...? one section of the Min of Justice is making 'drastic cuts' by closing 'outdated' prisons like Lancaster gaol, while another section wastes money on... oh I give up.
And there are still people around who think Justice Secretary Ken Clarke would have made a good PM !
