Operation Jasmine: Dr Prana Das unlikely to face trial

One of Wales' biggest inquiries into alleged neglect and fraud at care homes looks likely to end without a trial.

A doctor facing charges after the £11.6m inquiry will probably not go to court after suffering brain damage last year in a violent burglary at his home.

After a hearing at Cardiff Crown Court, the decision was made to leave the charges against Dr Prana Das on file.

Gwent Police welcomed the decision that proceedings could restart if his condition improved.

Nick Palit reports.
