MR FREEMAN SLAMS proposals to abolish corroboration in Scotland

The jealously guarded legal framework for proving crimes in Scotland is under attack by the Scottish Government as it considers whether to remove the requirement for corroboration in a criminal trial!

" Corroboration is an essential safe guard of an accused's innocence which essentially requires two independent sources of evidence of the essential facts of a case before anyone can be convicted of an offence . Without it an accused could be convicted of say dangerous driving or speeding on the evidence of one witness alone, whether that witness be a police officer or a civilian witness. One can readily see how this could be open to abuse. Without an independent check of that person's evidence, there would be a real risk of a miscarriage of justice. Over the years there have been hundreds of appeal cases overturned in the appeal case where the Appeal Court have agreed that a material miscarriage of justice has occurred following a conviction without the necessary corroborative evidence. My view is if we dispense with corroboration in Scotland we will be walking many cases into such similar miscarriages. I have defended more than enough cases to know that a police officer's testimony in court cannot and has not always been relied on, even in corroborated cases - I cannot begin to imagine how worse this could get where the only evidence put before the court is the evidence from a single police officer or worse a civilian witness who has a strong motive to lie or even is just genuinely mistaken. Even with the most deft and robust cross examination there is a risk that the judiciary might just get it wrong.
