The Crown Prosecution Service has said it will review its decision not to charge the Labour peer Lord Janner over allegations of historic child sex abuse.
The decision by Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders not to proceed with court action against the the 86-year-old will now be revisited by an independent external barrister under its Victims' Right to Review scheme, the CPS said.
- Background: No prosecution for Labour peer over abuse claims
The CPS Victims' Right to Review scheme was set up to give complainants the ability to ask the CPS to review its decisions - usually when there has been a decision not to prosecute.
The CPS has been asked to invoke this process in the case of Lord Janner and that review is now taking place.
Lord Janner was accused of a string of historic child sex abuse allegations during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s but deemed unfit to stand trial because he is suffering from dementia.
