Posted in law and order by ukliberty on September 10, 2008

The Times:

The decision to seek a retrial was made by Sir Ken Macdonald, QC, the Director of Public Prosecutions, following discussions with senior counsel and Scotland Yard’s Counter-terrorism Command.

Sir Ken said he had “carefully considered” the case and concluded “that the prosecution should apply to retry each of these defendants on every count that the recently discharged jury failed to agree upon”.

He added: “This will include a count that each defendant conspired to detonate improvised explosive devices on transatlantic passenger aircraft. We shall be returning to court to make this application in due course.”
