Laura Perrins: Our feminised justice system will create show trials


Writing in today’s Daily Mail, co-editor Laura Perrins makes the case against pre-recorded evidence at rape trials:

It is the Crown’s duty to prove the guilt of a defendant beyond reasonable doubt.

However, this principle has been eroded by recent Tory and Labour governments which have changed the way court cases are conducted.

The latest attack is the suggestion that in rape trials the alleged victim should be able to give ‘recorded cross-examination’ that is played to the court.

This is wrong. It is nothing less than political interference in the justice system.
