  • It's a disgrace that a Government agency has to spend so much money in reviewing its own documents for disclosure. I find it incredible that in defending its own position, it needs so many people. The process of disclosure should be pretty simple. Hand over the documents requested and/or relevant to the case.

    It seems to me that they are actually reviewing matters to see if they can get out of it.

    The SFO have refused to investigate a £100 million plus case of obvious fraud where I am a victim yet spend a gross amount of time and money pursuing what was never an obvious case.

    It is evidence of their "political" nature that they would rather pursue a dubious high profile case rather than my own low-profile but completely valid case.

    It makes one despair and lose faith in English justice.

  • I have to comment on the '1000 docs per day', considering they are talking about 10-15 junior barristers doing the review (who are obviously considered to be much more experienced than dedicated mere review lawyers)...... thats scandalously low...... even at the beginning of a similar review process....... and without 'compromising the accuracy and diligence of the process'.
    Lawyers working on cases more complicated than this one would expect to be at least 4 times faster than that. Depending on who staffs the review, the reviewers would normally be hand picked for their experience in such matters, so quality is a non-issue.

    Sounds like huge inefficiences, the wrong reviewers, or a time wasting exercise.
