My latest video (see below) gives further details on the failure of judges to use their powers to impose tariffs that fit the circumstances of the vindication cases, despite clearly having the powers to do so under the very law that is often cited as limiting their powers (Schedule 21 of the Criminal Justice Act of 2003). Section 8 and 9 of that Schedule establish clearly that judges have the powers to do that. The question is, why aren’t they using these powers?
My latest book Trials and Tribulations – Innocence Matters is available to order through FIP. Our next publication will be Bad Form – How Tariffs Protect the Guilty and Punish the Innocent. It will detail the issues I discuss in the video in greater detail.
