Anthony Burton speaks at launch of report calling for abolition of security cages from courtrooms

As reported here, Anthony Burton spoke at the launch of the civil liberties organisation JUSTICE’s report “In the Dock: Reassessing the use of the dock in criminal trials”, which reviews the criminal dock and recommends that its use be discontinued, as it can compromise the accused’s right to a fair trial and can undermine the presumption of innocence.

The Lord Chief Justice, Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd, launched the report and Anthony Burton, a council member of JUSTICE, also gave his support.
