Criminal Justice (Corruption Offences) Bill 2017: Committee Stage
I wish to reiterate what has been said. I am happy to support the amendment, which allows for a District Court to hear the case and still afford protections to the person against whom the case is being taken. It may also take pressure off the higher courts, which is a positive move. I am willing to listen to the Minister if he comes back with an argument against it but I believe this move would be a welcome one.
