Yesterday we held a private roundtable on the implications of Brexit for the rights of suspects and defendants.
An engaged and knowledgeable audience heard from three speakers. Professor Ed Cape from the University of the West of England gave an overview of the procedural rights for suspects and defendants and the mutual cooperation in the European Union.
Jago Russell, Chief Executive of Fair Trials, spoke about the European Arrest Warrant. Jodie Blackstock, Legal Director of Justice, spoke about procedural safeguards for suspects and defendants.
