DPP can't make any more mistakes

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I would urge our director of public prosecutions (DPP) to look at the growing list of controversial rulings to prosecute or not to prosecute and the number of failed prosecutions handled by your office.

I cannot recall any previous DPP having triggered as many controversies as the current one, both in respect of rulings made and failed prosecutions.

As a member of the public not schooled in legal affairs, I am no better qualified to make judgements on the issues that have been aired in public than is expected of any intelligent juror of the court, but based on the various explanations offered to the public by the DPP and others, it does appear increasingly that something is rotten in the State of Denmark.

The DPP's proficiency in the use of words to justify her handling of the various issues is admirable but unconvincing. Remember also that "when words are many, sin is not absent ...". (Psalm 10:19)

It should be obvious to all that she cannot afford any more apparent missteps.
