Pressure on National re Courts Bill

The NZ Herald reports that National has offered Labour negotiations on how to progress the stalled Criminal Procedures Bill.

An interesting positioning in which you have the Sensible Sentencing Trust attacking National for opposing the scrapping of most deposition hearings, while National is being defended by lawyers from the Criminal Bar Association.

There was a good debate on the blog yesterday regarding the pros and cons of deposition hearings – including some useful contributions from lawyers at the coal face.
