“On the 18th June the House of Lords handed down their opinions
IN THE CAUSE
R v Davies (Appellant) (On appeal from the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division))
I quote from the speech of Lord Bingham, the senior law lord at paragraph 5 : ‘It is a long-established principle of the English common law that, subject to certain exceptions and statutory qualifications, the defendant in a criminal trial should be confronted by his accusers in order that he may cross-examine them and challenge their evidence.’
Today I am talking to Andrew Keogh, a barrister, published author and author of the White Rabbit blog about the case and the proposed anonymity legislation”
