Stewarts Law partner struck off after private prosecution
The issue here is that there is minimal detail, thanks to the SDT draconian approach to rulings. If the High Court were to take seven weeks to publish reasonings after the case is heard there would be uproar. Here we have a tribunal which, apparently, has the right to hear private prosecutions as if it were a civil court but i not under the same obligation to publish the details of its reasoning. Any attempt to contact the tribunal is met with a staunch rebuff. Surely Shaw will be unable to challenge anything the SDT decides until he has seen its reasoning. Will he be made to wait another seven weeks, time that could be extremely damaging to ones repuatation?
