Police Sergeant Smellie: the IPCC reports
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) report into complaints against Police Sergeant Smellie at the G20 protests has been published - see here. Earlier this year, Sergeant Smellie was acquitted by a District Judge (Magistrates' Courts) - see Easter Miscellany. The lady who was struck by Smellie did not give evidence at his trial. Has justice been achieved here? According to law it has. Further report on BBC.
