BCL partner, John Binns was quoted in a LexisNexis Business News article titled The impact of social media on criminal justice system–‘Ofcom of social
media is welcome’.
John states in the article:
“It is right that we remain vigilant about the potential for social media to prejudice the criminal process–while the cases are rare, they are important and high-profile enough to warrant close attention. Since the case of Ex parte British Broadcasting Corporation and others R v F and another  EWCA Crim 12,  All ER (D) 59 (Apr), we have also seen the rugby rape trial in Northern Ireland, where there were concerns about the naming of a complainant.”
