Talks about talks

[What follows is the text of a press release just issued by the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service.]

The following can be attributed to a Crown Office spokesperson:

"I can confirm that representatives of the Crown Office and Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary have been in close contact with FCO officials over recent days and will be meeting with them on Monday to discuss the situation concerning Mr Musa Kusa further."

[As a former civil servant (briefly, I rejoice to say) I am only too well aware of how meetings serve as a substitute for, but can be represented as, action.]
