R (on the application of D) v Director of Public Prosecutions

Prosecution – Director of Prosecution. The defendant Director of Public Prosecutions' (the DPP) decision, at the conclusion of a victim's right to review procedure, not to charge the interested party with any criminal offences arising from allegations of historic child sexual abuse made against him by the claimant could not be properly challenged or set aside. In particular, the Divisional Court held that the DPP's decision had not been irrational, comprised irrelevant considerations or contained a mistake of fact.
