    Here's the M16 SS HQ in London. Ugly as a tree stump. I wonder if his accuser, also an agent, get the same treatment? The article does not address that matter directly, but it appeared not. Typical British?

    The request for anonymity came from the PROSECUTION, not the defense. It's still an unusual situation with (possible) ramifications down the road, but I really don't see a better alternative in this case. The man has been charged, not convicted. He is innocent of any wrongdoing until proven otherwise. Is it "just" to reveal his identity and place him in real, immediate danger while he is still innocent? What would be the fall out for other deep undercover agents if any accusation - no matter if it was proven untrue - would "out" them and put them (and perhaps others that they work with) in harms way?

    Not everything is black and white, folks. I think the judge in this case made a reasonable decision based on the circumstances, and I'm glad that he was given the leeway to do so rather than to have his hands bound by some unyielding regulation that could possibly result in a dead defendant.
    OD* and msgt/ret like this.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
