John Taggart (London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE)) has posted Defendant Intermediaries in the Criminal Justice System: Is Northern Ireland Leading the Way? (LSE Law - Policy Briefing Paper No. 29) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
The Youth Justice and Criminal Evidence Act 1999 (YJCEA) introduced a range of special measures to assist vulnerable and intimidated witnesses when giving evidence in criminal proceedings. The Criminal Evidence (Northern Ireland) Order 1999 (CEO) mirrors the full range of measures covered by the YJCEA.
