CPS: 'Truly tragic and heart-breaking case'

This was a truly tragic case involving the death of a little boy, Hamzah Khan, whose body, showing signs of extreme malnutrition, was discovered amidst scenes of the most appalling squalor at the family home in Bradford in September 2011.

It is likely his body had lain undiscovered for the best part of two years.

It is heart-breaking to contemplate the suffering Hamzah must have endured.

– Malcolm Taylor, from CPS Yorkshire and Humberside’s Complex Casework Unit
