Former DPP Ken MacDonald Explains The UK’s Two-Tier Justice System

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 ?
