http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/northern_ireland/4509858.stm There are serious undertones in this! Don't you think???? 1. Unlisted hearing 2. "The prosecution offered no evidence "in the public interest". " Is the attorney General going to give an explanation as to why it is in the "public interest" not to offer evidence in court? In a statement from the PSNI the police said that "a crime had been committed" and they acted accordingly. So a crime is committed - arrests made - charges preferred - preliminary hearings heard - remands made - DPP drops the charges. Looks like another sop to SF to me.
