Comment on Magistrate fails Transport Hall of Fame: Liz Martin by Ian Sharp.

There is no such thing as a “natural justice right” to comment in court about sentencing. Courts could turn into popular entertainment if this ever happened. Liz has a perfect right to comment outside the court, as she is doing very ably. She also has a right to ask the prosecutors to appeal the decision re restitution I would have thought?
Also, civil action against the thieves? Might lead to the sale of the car at least? Worth getting a legal opinion. Unfortunately there is a lesson here about keeping large sums on business premises, it seems word gets around. Bloody tough on the THofF though.

Crikey, anonymous “David”, there goes judicial independence, something our ancestors fought long and hard for in centuries past. Whoosh, gone. Find out more about it before you turf it out. What definition of “justice” are you using there?
