Shami Chakrabarti responds to the Crown Prosecution Service report

Shami Chakrabarti, Labour’s Shadow Attorney General, responding to the Crown Prosecution Service report, said:

“Failing to meet disclosure obligations in nearly half of criminal cases amounts to a national scandal in our justice system.

“It is impossible to believe that this hasn’t led to some miscarriages of Justice and the new Attorney General must come to Parliament with an explanation and remedy, without delay.”
