The issues involved in private prosecutions were the subject of an article by Nicola Sharp.
In her piece, Nicola cites recent freedom of information statistics about private prosecutions that were obtained by Rahman Ravelli. She uses these as a starting point to outline the value of private prosecutions.
Her article details the relevant legislation and explains the approach that the Crown Prosecution Service can take regarding a private prosecution.
Nicola also emphasises that anyone considering a private prosecution needs to seek expert advice in order to determine what the chances of success are – and then maximise those chances.
