CPS decision not to prosecute Janner is to be reviewed

"A group who claim ex-Labour MP Lord Janner sexually abused them have been granted a review of the CPS's decision not to prosecute him."

T"he Director of Public Prosecutions had said Lord Janner, 86, would not be prosecuted, despite sufficient evidence to bring a case, due to his dementia."

"But the CPS said a senior prosecutor unconnected to the original case would now review that decision."

"The ex-MP has denied any wrongdoing."

"Defending her decision following calls for a review last month, DPP Alison Saunders told the BBC that Lord Janner's dementia was so severe that he could "play no part in a trial"...

"One man, who claims he was abused by Lord Janner, had called for the release of the medical reports which prompted the decision not to prosecute the peer."

"He told the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire programme that seeing the reports would give him peace of mind."
