MPs Are People, Too
If charged, then they have the right to face their accusers in open court, and, where applicable, to be acquitted by a jury of their peers. There is far too much secrecy in out justice system, and one of the most flagrant examples is secret acquittal of the charged on the part of the CPS. Acquittal without due process is as repugnant as conviction without due process. The innocent charged have the right to hear an open court declare to the world their innocence. Even if they are MPs or Peers.
