Find an intermediary for a vulnerable defence witness


Unfortunately the current situation with regard to vulnerable defence witnesses is problematic. In principle MoJ are empowered to match a Registered Intermediary, however they have no procedure in place for providing the costing which the LAA requires in order to sanction the use of an intermediary.

We recommend that you use our Find an Intermediary for a Vulnerable Suspect or Defendant system, stating clearly that the enquiry relates to a vulnerable witness rather than a suspect/defendant, and giving his/her age.
