Keir Starmer Q.C. handed safe Labour seat


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


THEN: 18 MONTHS AGO:


MADELEINE MCCANN: UK PROSECUTORS VISIT PORTUGAL TO DISCUSS NEW LEADS

Review of case by Met police has uncovered a number of potential suspects who have not been interviewed

Senior prosecutors have travelled to Portugal in a move that could pave the way for the Metropolitan police to begin a new investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.

Alison Saunders, the senior crown prosecutor for London, and her colleague Jenny Hopkins, head of the complex casework unit, discussed new leads in the inquiry with their Portuguese counterparts.

A £5m Met review of the case, which began in 2011, has uncovered a number of potential suspects who have not been interviewed. Detectives have said they need to be questioned in order for them to be eliminated or pursued further.
The visit of Saunders and Hopkins, accompanied by Met investigators, is a significant development – and adds to speculation that the Met are about to begin a new investigation into the disappearance of the three-year-old in May 2007.

A spokeswoman for the CPS confirmed that prosecutors from CPS London and investigators from the MPS had visited their Portuguese counterparts to discuss the disappearance.

Detective Chief Superintendent Hamish Campbell*, who supervised the Met review, said recently that there were a number of individuals who needed to be questioned in relation to the investigation as well as further forensic opportunities to examine.

It is understood that up to 20 individuals need to be questioned. These include some known child offenders who were in the Algarve at the time Madeleine disappeared.

The Met began a review into the case – funded by the Home Office – after Madeleine's parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, appealed to the prime minister, David Cameron, for help**.

The Portuguese investigation was closed in 2008 and there have been repeated discussions between the British and Portuguese authorities with a view to reopening the inquiry. So far the Portuguese have refused to do so, saying concrete new evidence would be required.

An investigation led by the Metropolitan police would allow detectives in the UK to interview suspects.

The Metropolitan police is understood to have asked the Home Office to fund a full investigation. A development is likely within the next few weeks.

Madeleine went missing from her parents' apartment in Praia da Luz in 2007 as her mother and father dined with friends at a nearby restaurant.

Detective Chief Inspector Andy Redwood, who is leading the Met police review, said last year his team had identified 195 potential leads.

Scotland Yard also published an age-enhanced image of what Madeleine might look like today, aged nine, saying they had uncovered new information to suggest she could still be alive and living with her abductor.


"We are all in this together"

*  DCS Hamish Campbell's most famous role was completely botching the prosecution of Barry Bulsara for killing Jill Dando. Whether this was rank incompetence or something more sinister is not yet known

**  The Guardian somehow forgot to tell its readers that the initial Operation Grange review was triggered by Rebekah Brooks (whose newspaper was at the time serialising Kate McCann's book, 'madeleine') threatening the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom

Yes, I did.  In fact I read the article earlier this evening.  There has been speculation since he resigned his position at CPS that he would enter politics.  My point is that he hasn't been elected yet, even though it's regarded as a safe seat, and the thread states that he will become Labour MP in May.  Do you have super-human powers that you can predict he will win the seat, TB?
Not being pedantic, BTW, just playful... hic!

Put it this way.  If they shaved a chimpanzee and dressed him in a suit, he'd get elected in that seat.  smug

Put it this way, his election to Parliament is such a racing certainty that if you want to back him for Parliament, the odds are 100-1 ON:

http://www.oddschecker.com/politics/british-politics/holborn-and-st-pancras/winning-party

For anyone not versed in betting odds, if you stake £100 on him to win, and he wins, you will get £101 back, LESS Betting Tax.

To put your £100 in a P.O. Savings Bank account at 2% interest would he a better bet.

The Crown Prosecution Service had a poor record under Keir Starmer, and corruption in the CPS grew - see Tom Harper's reports on police and CPS corruption and collusion in the Independent this year, uploaded here on the forum by myself and Doug D.

@ Ladyinred

"will almost certainly be a Labour MP this year".


Better?


But back to the point of the story...what was the point of sending over Alison Saunders and her colleague, back in April 2013 I think. Honestly, what has it achieved?
