Every living person has the inherent lawful right to protect themselves from health issues according to Article 2 of the ECHR (right to life), not even the government can overrule this inherent lawful right, let alone a local authority: https://bit.ly/39oigxC


The worst scenario here would be that a driver or vehicle owner is instructed to remove such a screen or forbidden from installing it in the first instance. If this were the case, and the driver - or indeed their passengers -were to con- tract the virus as a result, this could be directly blamed on whoever refused to allow or instructed the removal of pro- tective measures.


If the person then died as a result, this has the potential to be the fault of the instructing officer or body, and could have extremely severe consequences. https://bit.ly/3w7tsbv / https://bit.ly/3csNSnD


Manslaughter can be committed in one of three ways:


• Killing with the intent for murder but where a partial defence applies, namely loss of control, diminished responsibility or killing pursuant to a suicide pact;


• Conduct that was grossly negligent given the risk of death, and did kill (“gross negligence manslaughter”); or


• Conduct taking the form of an unlawful act involving a danger of some harm that resulted in death (“Unlawful and Dangerous Act manslaughter”).


The term “involuntary manslaughter” is commonly used to describe manslaughter falling within (2) and (3) while (1) is referred to as “voluntary manslaughter”.


We hope this never happens, and if it does, then it will be a matter for the courts and legal experts to decide.


This is why the topic of Covid screens is so important. Yes, there will be those who are certain that they are useless and a waste of money; there are others who would not and will not carry passengers without a screen installed. In fact, there are some education authorities who have insisted that there must be a screen installed for any school trans- port journeys.


But regardless of your own personal thoughts and feelings on this topic - stay safe, stay protected, stay healthy.
