Pre-recorded cross-examination under s. 28 of the Youth Justice and Criminal Evidence Act (YJCEA) 1999 enables vulnerable witnesses and intimidated complainants in sex offence cases to pre-record their evidence in advance of trial. Though s. 28 is the most far-reaching special measure to be introduced in England and Wales to date, very little is known about how this procedure operates in practice, particularly in sex offence cases. Outputs produced during the course of the Fellowship will inform a range of audiences and stakeholders about the impact of s. 28 and related measures on the treatment and questioning of intimidated complainants and the dynamics of adversarial trial in sex offence cases.
