Prosecutions under the 1351 Act during the War?
The Article says that there continued to be prosecutions under the Treason Act 1351 during the War.
There were certainly two prosecutions after the War (Joyce and Amery in 1946), but were the rest not prosecutions for treachery? The list of executions in the 1965 Hansard reference only mentions two executions for treason. James500 (talk) 15:22, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
I have rephrased the sentence. Richard75 (talk) 19:34, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
The article states: "all persons convicted of crimes under the Treachery Act of 1940 were executed", and later: "Portuguese diplomat Rogerio de Magalhaes Peixoto de Menezes, was sentenced to death but had his sentence commuted by the Home Secretary".
