LETTER: Jury avoidance

From Mr Anthony Scrivener, QC

Sir: The problem for the Serious Fraud Office in the Maxwell case was that the jury did understand the evidence and the fact that a jury returns a correct verdict is hardly a reason for doing away with juries. The only sure way of getting convictions is to let the SFO decide the result.

Yours faithfully,
