Question

Thank you for your answer to my question 2014/3189. The IPCC found that had they reviewed the appeal by UK Uncut protestors earlier they may have suggested it be sent to the Crown Prosecution Service because "the improper use of CS spray would most probably amount to common assault". However, because the six month statutory time period for prosecution had passed the IPCC no longer considered it appropriate. Are you satisfied that no further action should be taken into the two inadequate investigations carried out by the Metropolitan Police?
