Last December we reported on the case of Samuel Armstrong, an MP’s aide, who was cleared of rape after the police gave his defence team key social media information data from his accuser, just eight days before the trial – here.
Yesterday’s Victoria Derbyshire Show included a piece on the issue of social media data being used by defence teams in such trials. It will be available on iPlayer – here – until the end of this month, and is only available to BBC licence holders. The relevant section is 49:06 – 1:03:18.
Samuel Armstrong was in the studio, but Victoria Derbyshire gave him very little time to speak, likewise Joy Merriam, Solicitor Advocate at GWB Harthills. Most of the time was taken up by the two feminists in the studio, Sarah Green (Director, End Violence Against Women) and Jana Pinto (Sisters Uncut).
If everyone who read this gave us just £1.00 – or even better, £1.00 or more, monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
