First, I am delighted to know that the bad character applications are available in Northern Ireland ahead of the provisions on jury tampering—  that has slipped under the radar—and that there will be a non-jury trial where there is evidence of jury tampering. The Minister has kindly addressed that issue.

Secondly, could the facts leading to the DPP’s conclusion about a certificate being served also go towards a bad character certificate being issued?
