BREAKING: Deferred Prosecution Agreement Consultation to be launched today

Print Friendly

The Financial Times reports that today the Solicitor General is to put before Parliament  plans to introduce Deferred Prosecution Agreements to the UK’s prosecutorial armoury as well as launch the consultation.

Last month, the FT reports the Solicitor General visited the United States on a fact finding mission about the US Deferred Prosecution Agreement system including Judge Jed Rakoff, who has taken the US government to task on occasion for its use of the system.

The introduction of Deferred Prosecution would represent a fundamental change in the UK criminal justice system in a move we support.
