Alex Chalk – 2020 Comments on New Courtroom Protections

The comments made by Alex Chalk, the Justice Minister, on 23 November 2020.

The court process can be a harrowing experience for vulnerable victims and witnesses.

This technology seeks to minimise stress and ensure they can provide their best evidence, without reducing a defendant’s right to a fair trial.

This is part of our efforts to drive improvement for victims at every stage of the justice system.
