Derek Pasquill: no evidence offered

Discussion in 'Current Affairs, News and Analysis' started by Blogg, Jan 9, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:


    "The prosecution had claimed that Mr Pasquill, a desk officer at the FCO, had “committed a significant breach of trust” by leaking “numerous documents of a harmful nature, containing material which would affect the UK’s international relations.”

    But it later emerged that minutes of discussions involving senior Foreign Office civil servants supported Mr Pasquill’s defence that the leaks were not damaging. "

    Hmmm. Some interesting questions arise
  2. Do Loose lips still sink ships?
  3. msr

    msr LE

    Or the pathological hatred of any sort of openness and transparency by Whitehall Mandarins?

  4. Embarrassing HMG is obviously still considered to be a criminal offence then.
