I am a bit concerned that this Public Interest argument means that doctors never get charged and gas engineers always do without there being any reason given why it is the public interest to charge one group and not the other.
Is there a general policy by the CPS that it is not in the public interest to charge the medical profession with manslaughter due to gross negligence? If not can you tell me how many doctors, if any have been charged or considered for charging with manslaughter due to gross negligence by CPS in the last 5 years.
Also the recent trial R vs Paul Terence Williamson and Malden Plumbing for manslaughter due to gross negligence, held at the Central Criminal Court ,where the prosecution did so spectacularly badly. How much did this cost the public purse?
