Fiction or Fact V

Fiction: You waste public money defending undeserving career criminals

Fact: Justice demands that everyone is innocent till proven guilty and that everyone has the right to a defence.

The beauty of our system is that alleged criminals receive a proper defence but are also properly prosecuted. Many Criminal Barristers do both, you cant have one without the other.

The current proposals represent an existential threat to the Criminal Bar, threatening both future prosecutions and defences.

For every “undeserving criminal” there is a victim, deserving of a professional and effective prosecution team.
