CPS press release was not defamatory


Re: Bukovsky v Crown Prosecution Service [2017] EWCA 1529 Civ

The appellant contended that the Charging Announcement published by the respondent, although substantially true, contained words with a separate defamatory ‘sting’ which indicated that he was  involved in the production of indecent images of children. The Court dismissed the appeal.

Gavin Millar QC was involved in this case.
