A new precident perhaps?

One of the reasons I think no-one has faced any criminal proceedings so far in the Madeleine case is that although there seems to be strong grounds for bringing it to court, the material is not strong enough or beyond reasonable doubt for the CPS to go with it. I am not sure how much is on file or how much protection from "high places" there actually is, but based on what exsists in the public domain I am certain beyond a doubt that it is not concrete enough for the requirements or that cannot be redoubted enough bearing in mind how crafty barristers are at picking things to shreds.

The above link is interesting though, because I always believed that there was no double jeopardy. Am not certain of the differences between the Scottish courts and English, but it will be interesting to see if this sets a precidence for the future where a crime could be tried twice.

Does anyone else have a view on this?

If I recall we in UK have overturned the "double jeopardy" law.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/5333230.stm

The article states it applies to certain crimes.

"DOUBLE JEOPARDY
Introduced in Criminal Justice Act 2003
Overturns 800-year-old law
Covers 30 offences, including murder and rape
Requires new and compelling evidence

Double jeopardy man admits guilt in murder case."

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
