Providing a quality service to victims of bereaved families in terrorist incidents, disasters and multi-fatality cases
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has policies to support victims and bereaved families and the duty to provide an enhanced level of service required under the Code of Practice for Victims of Crime. Nothing within this guidance affects these rights and responsibilities.
This guidance applies where there is a criminal investigation into the death of multiple victims, particularly where it is suspected that there may be potential evidence of:
- Corporate or gross negligence manslaughter
- Other crimes with a corporate or state element
