Court of Appeal overturns move to halt fraud trial

Post  Sirop14 on Wed May 21, 2014 2:01 pm

A decision to halt a multimillion-pound fraud trial because of a lack of legal aid barristers has been overturned by the Court of Appeal.

Three judges quashed a ruling made after the prime minister's brother, Alex Cameron QC, argued the defendants would not get a fair trial due to cuts.

Many barristers in England and Wales are refusing to take on complex cases because of 30% cuts to their fees.

Judge Sir Brian Leveson said the row was standing in the way of justice.domoini
