BANNED POLICE PRACTICE STILL COMMON PLACE IN RSPCA

Will the RSPCA stop “colluding” too?

Mark Saunders’ family are to drop their action against the police,following the Court of Appeals confirmation that allowing police officers to “confer” before making their statements provides them with an “opportunity for collusion”.
The Association of Chief Police Officers have outlawed the practice.The RSPCA has been repeatedly criticised by the courts for allowing its inspectors and witnesses to meet each other in conference – and even to alter their statements.
Anne Kasica of the SHG said:“It is good news that Mark Saunders tragic loss has resulted in apositive result for justice. ACPO’s decision is obviously right. The question remains whether other agencies – perhaps most notably the RSPCA– will follow suit.
The RSPCA’s pre-trial conferences are such anendemic part of their culture, I wonder whether they will ever be ableto stamp it out – even if their Prosecutions Department tries to stop it.”

This post says it all. Barrister Sally Case (big salary plus indexed-linked pension and other benefits) and her "independent" fat-cat lawyers won't be happy about ACPO's concession reported above. Tim Wass and his holy-cow-killers in the RSPCA's sinister "Special Operations Unit" will never give up their secret pre-trial conferences. The RSPCA needs to keep its conviction rate high - besides, its lawyers just make too much money from them. The charity is, I hear, paying a top barrister £6,500 a day to prosecute a three month in the Magistrates Court. Do the math on that ... a brand new car every day? Wow!
