Yates : “Publish and Be Damned”?

Guido has been told, but is unable to confirm, that Yates of the Yard intends to publish the evidence he is handing over to the CPS. Is a co-conspirator able to confirm if that is correct / legally possible?

It would be an open invitation to the bringing of a private prosecution in the event the CPS were leaned on to not pursue a case…

UPDATE : Consensus of m’learned friends in the comments is that this is improbable. Would be bloody interesting if they did.

UPDATE : Seems to Guido that in the event of a courageous wealthy individual or individuals bringing a private prosecution on behalf of the outraged nation in the event of the CPS failing to prosecute, they would be able under the rules of discovery to get the evidence.
