Review of court arrangements due to COVID-19
The professions have received a ‘message’ from the Lord Chief Justice reacting to the changing situation relating to the spread of the virus and the justice system.
Perhaps the headline announcement is that there will be no new trials starting for the foreseeable future. While this may not affect those who wait for trials on bail, it will be of particular concern for those who are in custody.
We will wait and see what the court proposals are for dealing with issues such as bail and custody time limits applications.
Contact the fee earner dealing with your case if you have any questions.
