We have covered the case of Lord Janner previously. Today, 7th December 2015, his case will be heard at the Old Bailey to decide whether he is fit to plead (it seems almost certain that he won’t) and to decide what information about this should be given to the public.
We have a fact sheet on the procedure for Fitness to Plead cases. We don’t know if any psychiatrists or other medical practitioners will be giving evidence today, or how long it will last.
A trial (or trial of issue) is scheduled for 11th April 2016.
