Justice for Evans

Nigel Evans MP cleared of all charges brought against him

 

Today, justice has been done: Nigel Evans, a friend, contributor to The Steeple Times and a fine Member of Parliament, has been cleared of sexual offences against seven men.

The jury in Evans’ trial – which started on 10th March – found the former deputy speaker of the House of Commons not guilty on all nine charges brought against him and effectively made clear that the “most credible witness before them was the man the Crown Prosecution Service decided to prosecute”.

 

During the course of the trial, several of Evans’ accusers changed their stories. One even stated: “I do not wish Mr Evans to be charged as a result of what happened to me. I am making this statement as a witness and not as a victim. And I believe that what happened to me has been dealt with and is a closed matter”.

 

In my view, this case should never have been brought to trial as all it has achieved is for shame to be brought on the CPS and the seven “ruthlessly ambitious” individuals whose accusations resulted in a good man’s name being dragged through the mud.

  1. Delighted for Nigel. He should never have been put through this hell. His accusers should be named and shamed and then put in the stocks and pelted with rotten tomatoes.

  2. I am in agreement with Reginald… The world has gone mad. The CPS have a lot of questions to answer and Evans deserves to get the £200,000 (supposed) he spent on his defence back from them.
