Chapter 11
Trial process
(Part 3 of the Act)

Introduction

11.1This chapter considers issues raised about Part 3 of the Act pertaining to the trial process. The issues are generally considered sequentially with the exception of issues about “vulnerable witnesses” which involve consideration of various provisions in the Act and associated regulations. These have been bundled together as they are conceptually linked, and to avoid unnecessary repetition of the underlying concerns and principles.
