Link Between DPP And Lord Janner’s Son Revealed

Link Between DPP And Lord Janner’s Son Revealed

It has just emerged that the principal legal adviser to Alison Saunders, the Director of Public Prosecutions, was a barrister in the same chambers as the son of Lord Janner.

The Crown Prosecution Service confirmed that Ms Saunders consulted Neil Moore, a barrister where Daniel Janner worked, over whether to prosecute Janner.

The DPP justified her decision not to prosecute by saying experts agreed the labour peer 86, was in poor health due to advanced Alzheimer’s disease.

Some of Janners alleged victims have called on Ms Saunders to resign, saying they have been denied justice.

The Mail Online reports:  senior police officers probing allegations of child abuse offences against the Labour peer have reportedly raised concerns about Mr Moore’s involvement in the decision to not proceed with his trial.

Last night a CPS spokesman said Mrs Saunders made the decision not to prosecute on her own, and that Mr Moore told her he had been in chambers with Lord Janner’s son before discussing the case.

He said Mr Moore had acted properly at all times.

In a further blow to Mrs Saunders, senior Conservative politican David Davis last night labelled her ‘the worst DPP in modern times’.

He told The Sun that the treatment of journalists charged with paying public officials was ‘heavy-handed and lacking in judgment’.

Mrs Saunders said it was her job to make ‘very difficult decisions’, but the Lord Janner row showed no sign of abating last night.

    If it were anyone but an elite their ass would be in jail already. Seems he is still competent to sit on all those boards though. Who know the Soprano’s mob defense would actually work.
