Worboys Victims Formally Ask CPS to Reassess 93 Unprosecuted Cases - will anyone at the BBC ask Keir Starmer for a comment?

Guido Fawkes reports on the letter being sent by lawyers to the CPS.

'Worboys was only prosecuted in respect of a small fraction of the allegations against him: 12 complainants out of some 105 in total whom, we understand made complaints to the police.

It is understood that the intention was that 'the indictment was not overloaded and that the case was as simple as it could be to present to a jury'.

In the course of the trial an additional four allegations emerged which were linked to Worboys. Furthermore, in the wake of media observations following the conviction an additional 45 incidents were reported of which 18 were linked to Worboys. The total number of allegations linked to Worboys upon the closure of the investigation was 105.

Victims were told Worboys would "not be coming out for a long time" and, as a result, it was not necessary to prosecute the serial rapist with another trial. To the extent that this was the CPS's expectation at the time, this has clearly not happened and this justification for not bringing further prosecutions has fallen away. We therefore formally request that the CPS make a public commitment to reconsidering the evidence in all Worboys cases with a view to further prosecution."'

What odds will you give me on the BBC asking Keir Starmer for a comment? Quite long as the BBC is not an independent news reporting company but the de facto propaganda arm of the Labour Party.
