Who’s going to risk their career for the Syrians?

By johnboy - 12 January 2013 10

ACT Policing has finalised its investigation into the alleged trespass and property damage at the Embassy of the Syrian Arab Republic in O’Malley in February 2012.

A brief of evidence was submitted for consideration to the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions which subsequently provided advice that in accordance with the Prosecution Policy of the Commonwealth, prosecution proceedings should not proceed.

You equaled 8 in one sentence. Add the word prickly into that sentence and we have a winner.

I wonder what was in the brief?

http://www.cdpp.gov.au/Publications/ProsecutionPolicy/

“Generally, the more serious the alleged offence is, the more likely it will be that the public interest will require that a prosecution be pursued.”

You’d think that despite the lack of cool factor for the nation involved, the seriousness of the actions would warrant prosecution.

The thing I like best about RA is the occasional analysis of international issues, from a Canberra perspective, to which I try to contribute meaningful comments.

But bad boy bundah’s buggerly banter betters beggarly Byzantine backroom business.

Beat that!

There’s a world of flexibility in the terms ‘generally’ and ‘likely’. Where judgement of the public interest is at play, weight is likely given to a lot of variables to which the public is not privy.

Potential CT headline:

Poetix persecutes police prosecutors pensively, permanent prison penalty peeves perpetrators.
