The crown prosecution service has announced that Belly Mujina’s evidence will be reviewed! 

The police has reached out to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) to review the evidence of rail worker Belly Mujinga tragic case, sparked by “the interest of the wider public”.

The 47-year-old passed on the 5th April due to coronavirus, just weeks following the an disgusting incident; in which Mujinga was spat on by a man at her place of work, who declared he was infected with the virus.
Following her passing, an investigation was launched but the British Transport Police took no further action as they could not find any evidence that she was spat on or coughed at. Police also said a 57-year-old man they had interviewed in connection with the incident had a test result which showed he had not had coronavirus.

After her death, the British Transport Police decided to close the investigation into as there was no solid evidence that she had been spat or coughed at. This decision left the nation extremely unsettled. In result, protesters at the Hyde Park “Black Lives Matter” protests demanded justice.

In a statement released today, the British Transport Police said: “Following a review of all the information available, including the CCTV footage, witness statements and explanations given in interviews, senior detectives concluded that there was insufficient evidence to substantiate that any criminal offences had taken place and that the death of Mrs Mujinga did not occur as a consequence of that incident.

In addition: “We considered a range of potential criminal offences that might have been committed. Where there is evidence of someone deliberately spitting at another person this might constitute common assault or a public order offence.

“In order to consider whether any actions contributed to Mrs Mujinga contracting coronavirus and her subsequent tragic passing, it would be necessary to first have evidence of spitting or another action that might lead to infection, and therefore have a direct causal link.”
