Senior Crown Prosecutor Maria Bamieh v the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). Bamieh has won her second claim for racial discrimination against the CPS in 12 months - prompting increased calls by the Commission for Racial Equality (CRE) for a formal inquiry into the service. Bamieh's claim that she was discriminated against by her line manager regarding her lack of promotion has been upheld by an employment tribunal.
