the bad the vulnerable the heartbroken and the hopeful She must become their voice weave their story around the black and white of the law and tell it to the courtroom These stories may not make headlines but they wil Explanation for those in a non British law jurisdiction A barrister is a specialist in putting the case of the adveraries in court They are instructed by solicitors lawyers and work in Chambers where the clerk books in cases into the diaries of the barristers Barristers generally don t have any choice of who they would like to representThese are the stories of a young woman barrister who represented a wide range of people The most outstanding cases were the 17 year old but 18 and an adult at the time of the case caught with a mass of paeophile pornography on his computer He d been groomed and lured in at 12 himself This struck a real chord with meI was in Santo Domingo on holiday with my 11 year old son He was using the hotel computer outside our room I asked him what he was doing and he said Mummy there s a poor boy who s very sad who says nobody likes him in school I m going to be his friend I said let me see There was a young man lying down naked apart from briefs That s how easy it was When I got home I positioned our pcs at 90 degrees from each other in the study which had no curtains it s a rainforest I could see the screen reflection in the windows There was no wifi until he got to 16There were other cases that were similarly moving drug addicts caught in situations where rape violence and prostitution were their inescapable daily routines Men with mental issues that were visible to all except for some reason court psychiatrists for the prosecution who were then imprisoned rather than sent for treatment Children who had been turned against one parent by the scorned one Other cases tooIt was interesting to see how the barrister the author mined the paperwork the uestions and answers from the witness box and what her client told her for the absolute nugget around which the case was built and which would prove one side or the other was right or innocent or otherwise A lawyer friend of mine a C who is also a barrister as in the US the Caribbean combines the two roles says that he isn t there to defend the innocent or prosecute the guilty justice isn t his job He is there to represent his client s case to the very best of his ability The jury will vote on who made the best case and the judge will administer justice It s a very cynical view of the law But perhaps the only possible fair oneOne case in the book impressed me as to the difference between a civil and criminal proceedings where the same evidence would be offered and how the victim would be treated A woman from Bangladesh had been married to a British man of Bangladeshi origins and brought over to the UK She had never met him before She was abused physically and sexually by both her husband and her mother in law who took her passport from her and locked her in the house Eventually she managed to escape to a family member s house with her daughter Her husband took the child without her permission but she was returned to her by the police Now if the woman had gone to the police to lay a complaint of abuse and rape when she went to court she would have been kept far from her husband in different witness rooms would have had the opportunity to give evidence remotely or would have been screened in court from him If the husband had decided to act on his own behalf a barrister would have been employed by the court to put his uestions to her Everything would be done so that their paths would not crossBut because it was a civil case they sat in the same corridor the same canteen he could uestion her about his alleged violence and rape in any way he chose and even run his finger across his throat as a threat to what he would do to her A terrifying ordeal perhaps especially to someone from a different culture who spoke almost no EnglishSince the case hung on whether or not he did rape and abuse her the barrister had to find some sort of proof it was just his word against her s But she did Her husband as one of his first actions on greeting his new wife in his English home had ripped up her precious scrap book which contained an autographed picture of a Bollywood star He was uestioned about this this shows the absolute cleverness of the barrister of why we employ barristers specialists in uestioning in court I m going to uote it verbatim It had a note in it to my wife from another man Like a love note I wasn t going to have that The note was written before you met Yes But she was my wife now wasn t she And so when you married what was hers became yours Yes That s how it is in our culture To do with as you wished It s natural She knows and I know what her role as a wife is A page of the book offended you so you tore the whole thing up I ve already admitted that haven t I Her book her possessions her body her freedom they all belonged to you Look it s different Islamically the wife has only duty for her husband whether she does it willingly or not Click Got him His last phrase is chilling isn t itWhat happened to the wife after that She got a temporary order giving her residency and the child and he took off for Bangladesh sending her very insulting material and divorcing her as she had brought dishonour on his family by bringing him to court for rape abuse and taking her child He of course suffered no dishonour by being a violent rapistThe mother in law was ordered to produce the passport and so the wife was able to establish her identity and get housing and benefits and an independent life Although not necessarily a happy one In her culture being divorced for dishonouring her husband by exposing the private secrets of a family in public meant that she was almost certainly going to be rejected by all future potential husbands and many men and their powerful mothers would not want their families to mix with her nor their children to be friends with her s There is no sympathy for victims if they are women Indeed there is sympathy for the man how dare she report she was raped and abused the poor man going through that no wonder he divorced her It s a very cruel culture We talk about human rights but when the persecution no matter how extreme is traditional I asked them why when they persecute men for religion or colour it was seen by the world as oppression and when they persecute women it was dismissed as tradition Emer Martin Rewritten March 1st 2020 The Soul
