UK Prosecutors Face Legal Challenge Over No-Charge Decision in MI6 Renditions Case

Reprieve

Lawyers at international human rights organisation Reprieve and partners have filed a legal challenge against the Crown Prosecution Service’s (CPS) decision not to bring charges over the abduction and torture of Libyan families.

The CPS announced earlier this year that it would not charge former senior officials in the British Government over the 2004 operation, which saw two families – including a pregnant woman and four children aged 12 and under – kidnapped and ‘rendered’ to Colonel Gaddafi’s prisons.

As in the Julian Assange case, the prosecutors are once again not courting justice but bowing to political pressure. This is a clear case of obstruction of justice and all of these prosecutors be removed from their jobs and be sent before the judicial board that reviews lawyers' misfeasance in office.
