Astonishing that a malicious prosecution has been admitted and doesn`t seem to have been widely publicised. Tens of millions have already been paid out to the victims with millions more due to follow.

Sorry Buspass, should have checked that out beforehand.
These two should be fine. Plenty of other sources online if you want to Google it.

Incredible huh. Yet it doesn`t seem to be getting much traction. We are talking upwards of 50m coming out of the public purse in compensation.

So that`s the first lot cases settled with 10.5m shelled out tleaxh of the two wrongly accused and 3m in legal costs.
24 million quid out of the public purse that could have been used in the nhs or the schools or repairing potholes.

He explained: "Each of these pursuers was a very high-earning individual, and the settlement figure, in each case, reflected the actual loss which the pursuer was able to demonstrate had been caused to him by the wrongful prosecutions."


I`m in the wrong job - now multi millionaires.

The whole thing is completely bizarre. I don't understand how they could have made such a Noel Hunt of this.

I think it`s fair to take a person`s income into account when assessing damages due.

I think the same should apply to fines as well though - fair`s fair.

It's what happens when the masonic tendencies in the police seek revenge on those seen to have damaged their favoured institution.


Short story Rangers died and dodgy individuals in the police wanted to blame somebody.
