ARNELL, P. and SHARP, L. 2016. Challenges to prosecutorial discretion. Scots law times [online], 21, pages 113-115. Available from: http://westlaw.co.uk.
Considers challenges to prosecutorial discretion in light of the ECtHR decision in Da Silva v United Kingdom (5878/08) on whether UK authorities had failed, under ECHR art.2, to conduct an effective investigation into the fatal shooting by police officers of a man mistakenly identified as a suicide bomber. Refers to the case in the context of the prosecutorial aftermath of the fatal bin lorry accident in Glasgow December 2014.
