Get rid of some sub-judice legislation

Comment 11th July 2010

Whilst we need to respect the freedom and rights of individuals for a fair trial,  it is not fair  when official agencies can not respond when a case is subjudice  but the media are free (within reason) to speculate.      I cite the case of the death of Raoul Moat,  there is vast speculation over use of Tasar and police approach,  yet the IPCC and the police are not able to comment because of the rules.     These agencies should be transparent but we should enable them to be so  and not restrict their right to comment thereby allowing speculation.

Why does this matter?

fairness and to avoid speculation affecting impartial viewpoints
