The CPS are damn quick to prosecute some half-crazy girl who makes false rape allegations for wasting police time. It's about time they turned their attention to the mandarins for the same crime.
I feel a letter to the Commissioner coming on.
Wasting Police Time - section 5(2) Criminal Law Act 1967
The offence of wasting police time is committed when a person
- causes any wasteful employment of the police by
- knowingly making to any person a false report orally or in writing tending to:
- show that an offence has been committed; or,
- give rise to apprehension for the safety of any persons or property; or,
- show that he has information material to any police inquiry.
