All prosecutions under the Coronavirus Act have now been dropped, CPS admits – The Telegraph

Not a single person has been successfully prosecuted under the Coronavirus Act despite almost 300 people being charged, it has emerged.

Figures released by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) following a 12 month review, revealed that all 270 cases had been dropped before making it to court.

The vast majority of prosecutions were withdrawn because the police – confused by the constantly changing laws – had charged people with the wrong offence.
