Ministry of Justice has defended their actions by presenting their reasons based on the percentage of evidence put forward on Terror, Fraud and Sex Abuse work, and have said that Solicitors should be paid for the vast amount of work that goes into these cases. – Apparently evidence found on Social Media is not always relevant, however this was not the in case of Liam Allen whose case ended after Police failed to disclose ‘vital evidence’ to the case. (see lawgazette.co.uk)
But what does it mean for those vulnerable and facing hardship in our society? Ministry of Justice has agreed Legal Aid would still be available for those in dire need after a discussion in the House of Commons and numerous contact from MPs. The Gov.uk website still has a page where you can find out if you are eligible for legal aid – some options may lead you to other organisations for advice if no legal aid can be provided. (see gov.uk)
