Indian bar must represent Delhi gang rape defendants, says Bar Council
One of the key principles of the Bar is that you represent anyone who needs representation. In the same way that black lawyers must represent those accused of racism, and a father with a young child must represent those accused of creating child pornographic images, the Indian Bar must represent someone accused of rape. By representing someone accused of heinous crimes, you are not condoning those crimes. It is a mark of the professionalism of the Bar that personal feelings are put aside and every person is represented using a "cab rank" rule. It worries me that a barrister who claims to be qualified in both England and India does not appear to support this role of the profession.
