Oxford Pro Bono Publico (OPBP) produces Comparative Report on use of Secret Evidence for the Joint Committee on Human Rights (JCHR)

On 19 October 2011 the Government published a Green Paper, entitled Justice and Security, which proposes reforms to the way secret evidence is used in judicial proceedings. Oxford Pro Bono Publico (OPBP) has produced a Research Paper to assist the Joint Committee of Human Rights (JCHR) in its scrutiny of the Government's proposals. In particular, the report by OPBP provides a detailed comparative perspective on how secret evidence is used across various jurisdictions. In addition, a researcher from OPBP will be meeting with the JCHR next week to take part in a roundtable discussion of the Green Paper.
