Police hand Peter Hain's file to CPS

The police have been investigating Peter Hain's declarations of donations in his deputy leadership bid. They have now handed the file over to the CPS, who will decide whether to charge or not.

The problem here is that as I read the law, non declaration is a strict offence and lets face it, Peter did not come clean until he was exposed. If he does not get prosecuted for this, whether it is an "innocent mistake" or not, people are going to smell a rat.

The BBC has this.
