CPS publishes report tomorrow into claims prosecutors withheld undercover police officers' surveillance tapes from defence lawyers.
A key report into the Mark Kennedy controversy is due to be published tomorrow morning. Back in the summer, Keir Starmer, the Director of Public Prosecutions, set up a judge-led inquiry into claims that prosecutors suppressed secret surveillance tapes recorded by Kennedy, the undercover police officer, in the trial of a group of environmental activists.
Starmer set up the inquiry following allegations published by the Guardian and BBC Newsnight that prosecutors had concealed vital evidence over the collapse of a trial against six activists accused of conspiring to break into the Ratcliffe-on-Soar power station.
The Crown Prosecution Service has chosen to announce the publication of the report late this afternoon - for some reason.
