CPS statement on the Azelle Rodney Inquiry Report

05/07/2013

A CPS spokesperson said: "The Crown Prosecution Service concluded in July 2006 that there was insufficient evidence to start a criminal prosecution against any person following the death of Azelle Rodney in April 2005. That decision was taken by the CPS Special Crime Division after an investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

"Following the publication of the report into Mr Rodney's death, the IPCC has written to the Director of Public Prosecutions to ask that we review the case in light of new evidence provided to the Public Inquiry. This review will be completed as soon as practicable, in close liaison with the IPCC and in accordance with the Attorney General's undertaking to the Inquiry."
