High Court challenge to VRR scheme

High Court challenge to VRR scheme

In R(Chaudhry) v Director of Public Prosecutions, the High Court considered a challenge to CPS policy on a victim’s ‘right of review’ (VRR) where charges are brought against some, but not all possible, suspects. The case raised issues of standing, previous VRR policy, and its recent amendment. Duncan Penny QC appeared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
