Recent press coverage has suggested Donald Findlay supports removal of the Not Proven verdict – this is not the case.
In this video he outlines his continued support of the Not Proven verdict being available to Scottish juries as one of the three verdicts. He explains why, discusses the jury decision making process, the politicisation of Not Proven and how the removal of Not Proven could in fact increase acquittal rates. This video is an excerpt of a full discussion featured in The Scottish Criminal Law Channel .
Donald Findlay QC has also recently launched a new website with Hey Legal, including a free newsletter. The site can be viewed here https://www.donaldrfindlayqc.co.uk/
