Where an inquest, following a proper direction to the jury, culminated in a lawful verdict of unlawful killing implicating a person who, although not named in the verdict, was clearly identified, alive and whose whereabouts were known, the ordinary expectation was that a prosecution would follow. In such a case, the Director of Public Prosecutions was expected to give reasons for failing to prosecute.
