Press releases

UKSC press statement in the cases of Jude, Hodgson, Birnie UK Supreme Court 23.11.11
UKSC press statement in the case of McGowan UK Supreme Court 23.11.11

“Two suggestions are made for the improvement of the practice that is adopted at present: first, in order to minimise the risk of misunderstanding, police should ask the detainee for his reasons for waiving his right to legal assistance, and record the reasons given. This will provide an opportunity for any obvious misunderstandings to be corrected, though police officers should not go so far as to offer advice to the detainee. Second, police should inform the detainee not only of his right to legal assistance, but also of the arrangements that may be made if he is unable to name a solicitor or is concerned about the cost of employing one.” From UKSC press statement on McGowan.

Scottish Parliament Official Report 10.2.11: Richard Baker: What support has been given to the victims affected by the dropping of cases as a result of the Cadder judgment? Is the First Minister aware that, a year before the judgment, practitioners in Scotland warned that his Government was in breach of the European convention on human rights on the matter? Does he agree that those events require the Cabinet Secretary for Justice to make an emergency statement to Parliament? (Scroll down from link).
