Response to comment on corroboration

14 January 2014 | tagged News release

Responding to today to comments by Kenny MacAskill on corroboration, Ian Cruickshank, Convener of the Law Society of Scotland Criminal Law Committee, said: "Whilst the Cabinet Secretary has announced what is a welcome concession, our view remains that corroboration, given its centrality in criminal proceedings, should be looked at comprehensively before legislation is passed that abolishes it. We will of course play the fullest part that we can in any review, whether of corroboration itself or of additional safeguards if corroboration is abolished."
