It is the job of prosecutors to prosecute, not the PSNI
A letter from John F Cronin:
It is not PSNI role to prosecute cases
Why has the first minister Arlene Foster pressed the chief constable Simon Byrne to resign?
It is not and never was the chief constable’s function to initiate a prosecution.
That is the job of the North’s Public Prosecution Service.
The PPS said that having carefully considered the evidence and advice from senior counsel, it concluded that there was “no reasonable prospect of conviction in respect of any of the reported individuals”.
