If you are a ‘prominent’ person, i.e. part of the establishment like MPs, the CPS protocol is that the criminal file is forwarded to CPS Headquarters. This takes time and police forces are naturally cautious in such cases.
If you are Joe Schmo then the regional CPS will deal with you and justice is swift.
Is it unreasonable to ask what the CPS definition of a ‘prominent’ person is ?
Royal family, MPs, Lords… what about CEOs of companies, civil servants, and celebrities ?
I think the majority of us who are not prominent have a right to know what qualifies people for top tier justice.
