Law Society Gazette: Justice delayed is justice denied for clients in lockdown limbo

Law Society Gazette: Justice delayed is justice denied for clients in lockdown limbo. “No matter how long a criminal case goes on for, the mental anguish of being accused is unavoidable. The adversarial process which is already long and tortuous (the investigation stage alone can take years) is exacerbated by the Covid-19 delays and will take its toll on the most hardened of clients. Tragically for some it can be too much and I am not alone in representing clients who have sought to end their lives as a result of the unbearable pressures caused by an on-going criminal investigation.”
