Vicky is joined by barrister David Bryne to discuss the issue of Gardaí initiating and conducting prosecutions in the District Court. They discuss how that system currently works, what powers Gardaí have in that regard, and then turn to discuss why this is problematic. They also explore recent proposals for change, an important High Court decision in this space and consider what reform we might see. The issue of who starts the prosecution might seem niche but it is of real significance.
