For years – via Twitter, and now a tell-all book – an anonymous author known as the ‘Secret Barrister’ has painted a picture of a criminal justice system on its knees.
They have kept their identity, even their gender, totally secret – while giving us a rare peek behind the scenes of courtrooms in England and Wales.
Tonight, in their second film for Channel 4 News, they tell us the price of justice and ask whether only the rich can afford a defence.
Filmed before the pandemic, we disguise the Secret Barrister’s identity and have not used their real voice.
