MoJ ditches new court interpreting system in face of major backlash
I personally informed the interpreting project manager of two very serious problems. One interpreter with very basic English who has been placed in tier 3 has been used on a number of ocassions for tier 1 jobs. He also acted as an interpreter during an interview with a rape suspect. Following this intervirew, he felt the pressure and said he would not accept further bookings from ALS.
I inow another person who has never been assessed by ALS, but has been placed in tier 2 without his knowledge. He was shocked when he found out that he was in tier 2. He got another shock when he was offered tier 1 jobs. ALS doesn't know whether this particualr person is CRB checked. They don't even know if he is entitled to work in this country.
I personally wrote to MoJ and the lady sent me an e-mail saying she had received my e-mail. Nothing else has been done.
ALS is a joke. It is a scam and they will do anything to hide their failure.
