Barbara Dowling’s trial for alleged non-compliance with the census, scheduled for today, Tuesday 25 September, has been adjourned due to lack of court time until 10am 19 February 2013, in Glasgow Sheriff Court (court 16).

Census prosecution of less than 1 in 37,000 is “persecution, not prosecution”

Just 5 people have been prosecuted over the census – a prosecution rate of less than one in 37,000. This is so gross an imbalance that SACC believes that proceedings against the five amount to persecution, not prosecution…

“CACI has so far escaped any legal sanction over its involvement in torture at Abu Ghraib. Even if the lawsuits currently proceeding against CACI are eventually successful, CACI will still have avoided having to answer for its actions under criminal law. Yet Barbara Dowling is being accused of a criminal offence because she allegedly left some blank spaces on her census form. Scotland’s legal system is on the brink of making a fool of itself. The charges should be dropped.” – SACC Press Release
