Week in Justice 16 April 2017

A quiet week in the lead-up to Easter.

The main news was the Howard League and Prisoners' Advice Service successful appeal against the withdrawal of legal aid from prisoners on key issues such as Category A reviews.

Otherwise, a typical week with a particularly damning prison inspection report (Guys Marsh) and another judge disciplined for online comments.

Next week there will be two new probation inspection reports to look out for. 

Don't miss the excellent video guide to the prison system written for families and friends by Zack, who produced it while on ROTL.

Happy Easter!
