Alison Chabloz cross-examined

This is a cross-post by Jonathan Hoffman
On 7 March Alison Chabloz was cross-examined by the CPS’s barrister, Karen Robinson.

Amnesty International has quite a track record when it comes to dubious judgement calls. Most readers will remember when they teamed up with Cage – and the disgraceful way they went on to treat Gita Sahgal when she raised fully legitimate concerns.
