Judicial response to Carloway Report consultation

The Judges of the High Court of Justiciary have published their response to the Scottish Government consultation on how best to reform areas of criminal law and practice in Scotland.

The consultation was launched in July 2012, and was based on the recommendations set out in Lord Carloway’s Report on criminal procedure which was published in November 2011.

In their response, the Judges are generally supportive of the majority of the Carloway Review proposals, but unanimously agree that the rule of corroboration should not be abolished.
