star this property answer text <p>We welcomed David Lammy MP’s Review into the treatment of, and outcomes for, Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority individuals in the Criminal Justice System when it was published in 2017. We remain committed to taking each recommendation from that review forward in some way.</p><p>Ensuring that the courts are both transparent and comprehensible is essential, and publishing sentencing remarks would enable greater public understanding of sentencing decisions. We continue to consider how recommendation 13 could be taken forward. We are considering how the HMCTS Court Reform Programme and continuing developments in technology could provide new, cost-effective options for taking this forward.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We recognise that image-based sexual abuse, such as the behaviour criminalised by section 33 of the Criminal Justice Act 2015, is a terrible abuse of trust, and that it may leave victims feeling humiliated and degraded.</p><p> </p><p>We do not consider, however, that it is necessary to extend to complainants in section 33 cases the automatic prohibition on identification that applies, exceptionally, to sexual offences under the Sexual Offences (Amendment) Act 1992. In respect of a witness in any criminal case there is the possibility of applying to the courts for reporting restrictions to provide lifetime protection from being identified in the media; such restrictions will be considered if the quality of the witness’s evidence is likely to be diminished as a result of fear or distress at the possibility of being publicly identified. Special measures, such as giving evidence away from the court room or from behind a screen, are also available.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Drones are one of a number of ways through which criminals attempt to bring contraband, such as drugs, into prisons. As a result, and because not every instance is detected, we cannot reliably estimate the proportion brought into prisons through drones.</p><p> </p><p>Our security counter-measures are targeted at every stage of these criminal enterprises. Last year we launched Operation Trenton, a specialist team of Prison Service and Police investigators, to work together to intercept drones and track down the criminals behind them. To date, there have been at least 30 convictions related to drone activity, with those sentenced serving a total of more than 100 years in prison. We are also putting in place physical counter-measure such as netting and providing prison-specific vulnerability assessments to those establishments that have experienced a high number of drone incursions.</p> more like this
