Just heard about this review which makes for some reassuring news:

Reported in various places including here

"The decision to abandon a prosecution because of the victim's mental instability involved a misapplication of the Code for Crown Prosecutors, was irrational and was a violation of the victim's rights under art 3 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms."

Its about B who had a history of psychotic illness - so the CPS decided B couldn't be put before a jury.

Congratulations to B and supporters for challenging the decision and winning.
