Stories involving Dominic Grieve

Lord Blair's son took Sun work experience

Former Metropolitan Police chief Lord Blair's son did work experience at The Sun, the peer has told the Leveson Inquiry into media ethics

Lord Blair defended his son's placement at the paper. He said the work experience was "perfectly normal", and that the "current debate on internships was not play at that time". He said his son was "about 15" at the time.

Today it also emerged that the Attorney General is examining Sue Akers’ testimony to the Leveson Inquiry amid concerns that her remarks were in contempt of court.

The Metropolitan Police's Deputy Assistant Commissioner and head of investigations into hacking and bribes had alleged to the inquiry that there was a “network of corrupted officials” linked to News International.


Media warned on suspect identification

Media organisations could be barred from naming people arrested but not charged with a criminal offence. Attorney General Dominic Grieve told Radio 4 that newspapers were obliged to avoid prejudicing criminal investigations.


AG may 'intervene over Kelly death'

Dominic Grieve, the attorney general, has hinted that he may intervene over the death of government weapons expert Dr David Kelly. He admitted that those who doubt that Dr Kelly took his own life "may have a valid point."


Media rules 'must be stronger'

The Liberal Democrat conference has passed an emergency motion calling for stronger media ownership rules. The motion condemned "illegal and intrusive behaviour of those journalists and private investigators who have been complicit in phone hacking, especially where the bereaved or victims of crime have been targeted". Attorney General Dominic Grieve is under pressure to block the Metropolitan Police's attempt to force journalists to reveal their sources, the Guardian reports today. Simon Hughes, the Lib Dem deputy leader, said it was "entirely inappropriate for the Officials Secret Act to be used to try to prosecute journalists".


Grieve: Lib Dems have abandoned left wingers

Attorney General Dominic Grieve says the Liberal Democrats have "effectively abandoned" left-wing voters who saw them as an alternative to voters. Speaking to the Politeia think tank, Mr Grieve expressed concern that the contradictions inherent in the coalition meant the Government was becoming "the least populist seen in many a year". Mr Grieve also said that the final decision over whether prisoners will be given the vote will not rest with judges in the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), and hinted that the Government could seek to limit the power of the ECHR.


A new inquiry could be launched by Attorney General Dominic Grieve into the suicide of Dr David Kelly, a weapons inspector, whose death was investigated in an inquiry lead by Lord Hutton under the previous Labour government. Justice Secretary Ken Clarke is also considering the release of medical files in relation to Dr Kelly's death.
