CrimeLine survey - March 2012

"CrimeLine asked its 18,000 readers to report back in relation to criminal cases involving the use of an appointed interpreter during the week 12th – 16th March 2012.
A total of 403 responses were received:

Key points:
  • In more than half of all cases no interpreter showed up
  • In only 26% of cases did the interpreter appear as requested
  • In 18% of cases the interpreter was late for the hearing"
