Kate & Gerry McCann - Core Participants at Leveson Inquiry

Post by Gillyspot on 04.05.12 22:45

I have been following all the discussions regarding some MP's getting core participancy at the Leveson inquiry & found out something rather interesting bearing in mind Kate & Gerry were granted this status.

"John Toker, a spokesman for the inquiry, said core participant status would give the government the right to see documents and witness statements in advance and enable it to question other witnesses through its lawyers. Core participants may also discuss the wording of redactions in material to be published on the inquiry’s Web site.

But, he said, the inquiry imposes strict conditions and, for instance, requires core participants to sign confidentiality agreements to prevent premature disclosure of material provided to them.

According to its Web site, the status is available to those who “played a direct and significant role” in the scandal, had a “significant interest” in the hearings or “may be subject to explicit or significant criticism during the inquiry proceedings or in its report.”

So they had a preview of the statements of Myler etc & also get the chance to redact information as well. I have checked with a source & all core participants have this opportunity.

I would imagine this must have been "gold dust" to the McCanns as Clarence would say.
