This month’s hot topics… whole life tariffs and legal aid

9th September 2013

This month’s hot topics…

Whole Life Tariff as stated in @Lccsa, Strasbourg judges ruled last month that a tariff which forces murderers to die in jail was “inhuman and degrading” following an appeal by three killers including Jeremy Bamber, who shot dead five members of his family in 1985. Arthur Hutchinson, who is serving a “whole life” tariff, has become the first killer to capitalise on the ruling and attempt to have his own sentence declared a breach of his human rights.We believe in human rights and our website has a section specific on Prisoner rights

Legal aid lawyers in fight to save

Legal Aid has been on the agenda for months now and it’s been a hot topic for us on twitter this summer. We were glad to hear that plans to cut the legal aid bill by awarding contracts to the lowest bidder have been dropped. We believe that everyone should get a fair trial and therefore be provided with quality service not who is the cheapest!
