Cadder v HM Advocate (HM Advocate General for Scotland and JUSTICE intervening) – WLR Daily

Cadder v HM Advocate (HM Advocate General for Scotland and JUSTICE intervening) [2010] UKSC 43 SC; [2010] WLR(D) 268

“An accused’s rights would, in principle, be irretrievably prejudiced if incriminating statements made during police interrogation without access to a lawyer were admitted in evidence at trial. Accordingly, s 14 of the Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1995 should be read and given effect so as to preclude the admission of such evidence, unless in the particular circumstances of the case there had been compelling reasons for restricting access to a lawyer.”
