Prosecutions against four shoeshiners in Central have been dropped. The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department 'has decided to withdraw the prosecutions against the four shoeshiners' in Theatre Lane, a spokesman said. The four were originally due to appear in court next Wednesday to face charges for obstructing the road with tools they used for shoe polishing.
