Prosecute ministers who knowingly cause harm to vulnerable people

This petition had 13,044 supporters

It is not acceptable for a Minister of the Crown to implement policies that knowingly cause harm to vulnerable people. The offence of Misconduct in Public Office is committed when a public officer, acting as such, wilfully neglects to perform his duty and/or wilfully misconducts himself to such a degree as to amount to an abuse of the public's trust in the office holder without reasonable excuse or justification.

It is evidenced that the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions has abused the public's trust by knowingly implementing policies that cause harm to vulnerable people. We, the undersigned, call for the Minister to be indicted for the offence.
