  • Whitehall sources say wills issued in lockdown have no legal force
  • This is because many wills were discussed at lawyers’ meetings about Zoom
  • Wills prepared and attended during video calls cannot be legally recognized

However, officials at the Department of Justice (MoJ) have now ruled that witness witnesses at a distance cannot be legally recognized because the witnesses must be physically present with a “clear view.”

To avert the chaos of endless legal challenges, the MoJ plans to enact a law in September that will retroactively legalize all “video wills” since January 31.
