Letters responding to: Abolishing the jury system would be criminal, by Luke Gittos
I entirely agree with your article.
Had I been on the jury, I would most certainly have lodged a complaint about the behaviour and comments of the judge, who seems not to understand that while he may have ‘control’ of the court, the most important element is the jury.
Regrettably this is an attitude too often displayed by the judiciary, who while agreeing with ‘modernisation’ of other aspects of the legal system are not keen for it to apply to themselves.
