Time to lis­ten

Daily Record - - NEWS -

PEO­PLE power has won an early vic­tory in the fight for jus­tice for Shaun Wood­burn.

The four-year sen­tence handed down to the killer of the 30-year-old is one of the most in­sult­ing in Scot­tish crim­i­nal history.

The very least the Crown Of­fice can do is meet Shaun’s fam­ily and lis­ten to their con­cerns. And that is what they have now agreed to do.

The jus­tice sys­tem is of­ten ac­cused of be­ing out of touch with day-to-day life.

In this case, it ap­pears that pub­lic out­rage is bring­ing a healthy dose of re­al­ity into the dusty cor­ri­dors of the law.
