Lawcast 222: John Cooper QC on the DPP round table social media prosecutions discussions – Charon QC

“Today I am talking to John Cooper QC. The DPP is holding a series of round table meetings to consider where the law should be in relation to online social media spoken and written. Rather strangely – while the DPP invited lawyers who have been involved in recent high profile cases and some lawyers who weren’t even peripherally involved – Keir Starmer QC did not extend an invitation to leading criminal silk John Copper QC who actually led the team in the celebrated Paul Chambers Twitterjoketrial case – which the team won.”
