Editorial - Free press issues at the fore

Last week freedom of the press issues were in the forefront of the news ? the most obvious situation being the confrontation between extremists on both sides over the publication of cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammed. All I'll say about that is everyone knows most newspapers and magazines in Europe and western countries have the right to print whatever they want.

Law Times poll

In a recent report, Justice Michael Tulloch said there is ‘no reason’ why the director of the province’s Special Investigations Unit needs to be a lawyer. Do you agree with Tulloch?
Yes, there is no reason why the head of the SIU needs to be a lawyer, especially given that this is not a requirement in other places.
No, the role requires a specialized knowledge of criminal investigations, and the professional expertise a lawyer brings.
