Here we go again!
A human rights issue??
It was simply a 'fair trial' issue, something I'm sure we all agree with - or do we?
The point appears to be that if you are accusing anyone of a crime, it is necessary to stand by your evidence in court.
Let me be clear, I hold no truck with the alleged benefit cheat - but to describe it under your thread heading as " It was...human rights" is ridiculous.
