The Scottish Government has proposed to abolish the requirement for corroborated evidence in criminal cases. In February 2014, Lord Bonomy was appointed to chair a Reference Group “to consider what additional safeguards and changes to law and practice may be needed in Scotland’s criminal justice system when the corroboration requirement is abolished”.
Lord Bonomy’s review is known as the Post-Corroboration Safeguards Review. He requested that an academic expert group produce a report covering additional safeguards against wrongful conviction and other changes in law and practice which might be considered for introduction into the Scottish criminal justice system. This is the report of that expert group.
