Mujinga, 47, was reportedly coughed on by a customer who claimed he had Covid-19 while she was working at the train station in March 2020. British Transport Police (BTP) investigated the incident but said there was not enough evidence to bring charges against the suspect, as DNA evidence was inconclusive.

The BTP said that they spoke to a 57-year-old man in the course of their investigation but concluded that Mujinga’s death did not occur as a result of the alleged coughing incident. The Crown Prosecution Service reviewed the evidence but declined to bring charges against the man as CCTV footage and witness statements did not show evidence of a criminal offence. A Covid-19 test on 25 March confirmed that he did not have the virus.

. Her family’s lawyer said that they have been prevented from launching a private prosecution or civil claim against the suspect as the BTP have refused to name the suspect. Lawrence Davies, the family lawyer, said that he was being ‘stonewalled’ by the police and were seeking the suspect’s name so they could consider suing him for harassment and assault. An investigation by BBC Panorama raised questions about the inquiries carried out by both Govia Thameslink Railway, Mujinga’s employer, and the BTP, leading to peers and MPs writing to Prime Minister Boris Johnson to demand a public inquiry into her death. The family are also considering a civil claim against Mujinga’s employer, Mr. Davies explained. Yesterday (April 5), a vigil was held at London Victoria to make the one-year anniversary of her death. Sonali Bhattacharyya, from the Justice for Belly campaign group, told BBC News: “Her family… still wait for justice.” Belly Mujinga was on the concourse of London's Victoria station when a member of the public who said he had Covid-19 spat and coughed at her and a colleague (Image: ISABEL INFANTES/AFP via Getty Images) The BTP sent a statement to MyLondon, commenting on this matter: "As a police force we have to consider the safety and security of the individual concerned, as well as the Data Protection Act which restricts the sharing of personal data gathered as part of a criminal investigation. "Consequently and as per national policing guidelines, we would only release someone’s name in the public domain if and when criminal charges have been brought against them. "In this case following consideration of the evidence, interview under caution and subsequent review by the Crown Prosecution Service no further action was taken against them. "While our thoughts continue to be with Belly’s family and friends, it is also not within the remit of the police to assist the public in their pursuit of civil remedies. Moreover, the matter has now been remitted to Her Majesty’s Coroner for consideration." Read More Related Articles
