MP backs Hull man in Parliament over alleged assault
Hull MP Diana Johnson has warned of "a case of justice delayed becoming justice denied" in relation to a constituent who claims to have been assaulted by a member of the Armed Forces.
Ms Johnson used an adjournment debate in the House of Commons last night to highlight the case of Wayne Moore, who was working as a contractor in Germany when he says the assault took place in May 2008.
In April this year – almost four years after the original incident – the Service Prosecuting Authority told Mr Moore there was no realistic prospect of a conviction, arguing that the alleged attacker had acted in self-defence.
In the debate, Ms Johnson criticised the delay and the lack of any updates or support from the Ministry of Defence.

She said: "By having this adjournment debate, I wanted to highlight the severe difficulties that Wayne Moore has experienced getting his case heard fairly and the lack of any redress for what happened to him."
