Our Managing Partner Tim Maltin quoted on Prince Harry’s courtroom appearance on BBC News.
Tim commented on the risks Prince Harry faces when giving evidence and undergoing cross-examination in his case against Mirror Group Newspapers . The prince alleges three MGM titles engaged in phone hacking and other illegal practices to obtain private information which was then used in articles about him.
Tim noted: “This isn’t like taking questions from Oprah Winfrey in a celebrity interview,”
“It is a hostile encounter with a highly-skilled cross-examiner armed with a battery of techniques to undermine your credibility.
Tim concluded: “Giving evidence is daunting… and cross-examination is far more often traumatic than cathartic.”
