Under the government’s plans, all “sensitive” information held by MI5 and MI6 would be discussed in secret court hearings. “Special advocates”, security vetted and approved by the government, would see the information on behalf of individual defendants or claimants but not would not be able to reveal it to them.
Such procedures, or alternatively vetted jurors, could also be used in coroners’ inquests, the government has said.
You want to try and convict me, jail me, you have to do it with information legally collected and do so in public. And I get to use the lawyer of my choice, I even get to be my own lawyer if that’s what I wish to do.
Any other suggestions, ideas, possibilities, no, you get to fuck right off back into that oppressive hell these suggestions come from.
Go back and read a little bit about Soviet “jurisprudence” why don’t you? Poor sorry wretch protesting his innocence and his lawyer stands up and says “well, clearly he’s guilty, I’ve seen the evidence. Best you can do is shoot him quickly to reduce the agony.”
Remember people, all these laws about evidence, about procedure, representation, juries, lawyers, presumption of innocence and all. They’re not to protect criminals from righteous justice. They’re to protect us, the citizenry, from the politicians and their secret police. Yes, that really does mean MI5 and MI6, we do need to be protected from them just as we need them to protect us also.
Complete cuntybollocks of an idea being floated here.
