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. The CPS is mounting its own investigation into institutional racism within the service in an attempt to head off the CRE. Meanwhile Andrew Dismore, Labour MP for Hendon, is raising the issue in the Commons. Dismore is asking solicitor-general Ross Cranston to find out whether Director of Public Prosecutions David Calvert-Smith had any race awareness training.
