This morning Harry Redknapp and Milan Mandaric were found not guilty of tax evasion. Now I don't know if their actions were intended to dodge tax but what I do know is that the case appeared rather flimsy. Now I read that this was a police investigation that lasted five years and cost wait for it...eight million pounds! What!?
This is happening far too often. How many times do we hear that the CPS is bringing cases into court that are badly researched and far too costly. I do not know if the reported figures are accurate but bearing in mind the result it does appear that somebody is defrauding the government. It is high time that the competence of the CPS came under the spotlight and their success rates investigated.
