Friday 18 February 2005 Response to ‘Broadcasting courts’
Policy Watch #8
'A democratic imperative to make open justice as public as it can be and the existence of modern broadcast technology that can allow this marks a new frontier in open justice. If broadcasting is banned – or, partially banned from certain trials such as jury and criminal trials – those in authority are denying the public their full potential in a modern democracy to judge the justice system for themselves.'
