Yesterday we heard the news that two people had their convictions quashed because the judge expressed a view that the scales of justice might be tilted in favour of criminals rather than victims.
In April the media was full of news relating to Justice Adrian Hardiman critisizm of Justice Flood for hiding evidence, editing witness statements and denying costs to witnesses.
In withholding that material, the tribunal knew, “as any lawyer must have known, they were gravely hampering the appellants in making their defence”, the judge said. “It is chilling to reflect that a poorer person, treated in the same fashion by the tribunal, could not have afforded to seek this vindication.”
There seem to be a lot of mistakes happening... normal people get fired for screwing up!
