Good posting Joe, we have a totally useless scrutiny panel (sorry Sarah, despite your hard work, there are serious areas which dominate/ruin people's lives which could easily be controlled, not your faut etc).
I have a friend who has been caught up in an investigation which has ruined his working life through no fault of his own. Civil servants "doing their job -- yawn" taking time haven't cleared him and he has lost his home, yet when he is cleared, he will have no recourse as to putting his life back. It's disgusting. He has not been charged (no it's not SSS!) but he cannot legally operate until his name is cleared. The Civil servants investigating have had holidays, time to do other things etc and all the time he is unemployable until such time as they decide he is innocent.
