CPS function - what might be possible to prove in a Court

Taken from todays' Crown Prosecution Service circular.

Notes to editors:
The CPS’s function is not to decide whether a person is guilty of a criminal offence, but to make fair, independent and objective assessments about whether it is appropriate to present charges for the criminal court to consider. The CPS assessment of any case is not in any sense a finding of, or implication of, any guilt or criminal conduct. It is not a finding of fact, which can only be made by a court, but rather an assessment of what it might be possible to prove to a court, in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors, a copy of which is provided here.

Wonderful sentiment. Now enforce this in the Corporate Murder of Accrington Veteran and dementia sufferer Robert Michael (aka Andy) Miller.  Let, as the Law prescribes, a jury determine the cause of death in Mr Miller's instance and put aside the ruling from a poorly investigated case presented at the Coroner's Court.  

As many readers understand, those especially who are and have close friends and relatives stricken with heart disease and strokes, the instant you are discharged from hospital you are expected to take three monthe STRESS FREE rehabilitation.

Andy was dragged out of his sick bed only a fortnight after being discharged from hospital where he had been in intensive care and a coma after having a heart attack and then a major stroke.  It is possible that he would be on the terraces of Ewood Park today if the bailiff had not violated every aspect of his recovery.  A simple fact but one ignored by both Jack Straw as Minister for (In)Justice, and the local Coroner who ruled that Andy died of Natural Causes.  The evidence suggests otherwise but both the Coroner and MoJ have come to conclusions without reviewing ALL known facts.
