MG5 – How to complete guidance

Last Summer (2016) the Senior Presiding Judge chaired a meeting with senior practitioners to discuss issued raised regarding the Initial Details of the Prosecution Case (IDPC). As a result of those discussions it was decided that it would be helpful to provide further guidance to police officers on the content of the MG5 (case summary). As a consequence HHJ Collier QC worked with the police to produce the attached guidance. This has received positive feedback from practitioners and been approved by the BCM National Implementation Team.
