Lord Janner lawyers lose High Court bid over child abuse charges

  • 4 hours ago  BBC. com


Lawyers for Lord Janner have lost a High Court bid to spare him attending court to face child sex abuse charges.

The 87-year-old peer, who has dementia, must now appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Friday in relation to 22 charges spanning the 1960s to the 1980s, which he denies.

The ex-MP's lawyers had argued it was "barbaric, inhumane and uncivilised" to force him to attend as he was too ill.

But judges ruled there was a "strong public interest" in his attendance.

Lord Janner's lawyers said they were not planning to appeal the ruling.

If the peer does not attend Friday's hearing, he could be arrested - or prosecutors could ask the High Court for a voluntary bill of indictment to allow the case to proceed in his absence.
'Public justice'

Lord Janner's family have strongly denied claims he used his power as an MP to abuse young boys over three decades.

His lawyer argued he had "virtually no language left at all" and was likely to have a "catastrophic reaction" if he attended court.

A previous ruling ordering him to attend in person was "irrational and perverse", and violated his human rights, said Paul Ozin.

However, upholding that ruling, Lady Justice Rafferty said it did not violate his rights and even if Lord Janner had a reaction to appearing in court it would be "short lived and rapidly forgotten".

Justice should be public and court not a place of "avoidable spectacle", she said.
