Abolish the ban on recording court proceedings

This petition was published by Association of McKenzie Friends on Aug 29, 2011

In the light of WWII Veteran Norman Scarth (born 1925) having been imprisoned for six months under excessively harsh conditions since 26 July 2011, we are supporting Barrister Kelman's and Heather Brooke's idea to abolish the ban on recording court proceedings and call upon HM Government to act swiftly.

As a minimum, the 30-year rule ban on official recordings should be lifted, if not official audio and video recordings put in place - in the digital century we live in.
