Our thanks to Stu for this. The start of the piece in the Telegraph:
Photographs and social media accounts do not necessarily need to be fully checked in rape cases, the head of the Crown Prosecution Service has suggested.
Alison Saunders, the Director of Public Prosecutions, insisted she does not believe anyone is in jail after being wrongly convicted because of failures to disclose crucial evidence. [J4MB: Saunders is lying, and she knows it. She could get a job as a ‘comedian’ on the BBC with that one sentence alone, and we hope she’ll soon have the time free to pursue that line of work.]
Ms Saunders’ insistence that the justice system is working comes after Scotland Yard launched an urgent review of approximately 30 sex cases due to go to trial after the collapse of two rape prosecutions in a week in December.
Anna Soubry, the Tory MP and former barrister, said she was “appalled” at Ms Saunders’ “ill informed comments” relating to disclosure. [J4MB: At last! An MP criticising the toxic feminist harridan publicly!!!]
Later in the piece, in relation to the Samson Makele case:
Ms Saunders rejected suggestions that it should have been obvious to check for photographs.
She told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “Well it is not because if you have a case where people have briefly known each other there is nothing that says there will be photographs. [J4MB: The weasel words ‘there is nothing that says’ could be said for any type of evidence. It would surely take very little time to check a phone for photographs taken around the time of alleged sexual assaults.] What the police obligation is is to pursue all reasonable lines of enquiry. [J4MB: With heavily politicised police forces being required to arrest more men with the hope of more convictions, ‘reasonable lines of enquiry’ will be a VERY low bar.]
“That doesn’t mean going into every single avenue of your life. They would look to see if there was contact as in text messages which they did and which we looked at and we served.
