Law Times poll

Law Times reports an Ontario court has ordered the province's Ministry of the Attorney General to release a set of draft guidelines for prosecuting HIV non-disclosure cases. Do you agree with this move?
Yes, it is important for the Crown to be open and transparent about the way it prosecutes these cases, so people understand the application of the law.
No, the Crown does not have to release this information. The ministry has a right to keep this information internal, for use among employees.
