CPS make public police referrals of Cyril Smith
December 7, 2012, 7:16 pm
A search of records transferred to the CPS 26 years ago from the former office of the Director of Public Prosecutions has shown a further two police referrals relating to Cyril Smith. This information is being made available in the interests of openness and transparency.
The records are:
- Early 1970s – Record indicates file received on Smith, aged, 42, for allegation(s) relating to indecent obscene publications.
- Early 1980s – Record indicates file received on Smith, aged 55, for allegation(s) in relation to Public Bodies Corrupt Practices Act 1889.
No further detail or information is contained in the records and there are no files in our possession which relate to them. We are therefore unable to determine the detail of the offences, the extent and credibility of any evidence or if any action was taken.
