    'Fatal service strike' Mock Trial

    Council Chambers, Civic Centre, Gateshead
    Cable strikes occur all too frequently, often resulting in very extensive injuries & even death. Significant fines & imprisonment can result if such an incident leads to a successful prosecution of companies & individuals. This Mock Trial will provide an insight into what it is like to be involved in a health & safety trial, either as a witness or a defendant. You will be provided with information about the offences & penalties, & the sort of issues that will be most persuasive to a jury in determining whether a defendant is guilty or not guilty! The trial takes approx 3.5 hours to run. You will sit as a “member of the jury” deciding whether the defendants are guilty or not guilty. You will hear evidence given by witnesses, observe cross-examination & listen to a Judge summing up the case. The fate of the defendants will then depend on you! Cost £30.00 + Vat per head non CECA members; £15.00 + Vat per head CECA members
