"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. "

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