Cameras to be allowed to peek into a UK court
British Courts Minister said that justice must be seen to be done, so limited television broadcasting in courts is being introduced.
London: US-style televised justice is gaining traction in Britain. Britain's Ministry of Justice says a proposal to allow cameras to broadcast cases from England's Court of Appeal has been approved by lawmakers in Britain's lower house.
British Courts Minister Helen Grant said in a statement on Thursday that "justice must be seen to be done, that is why we are introducing limited television broadcasting in courts from next month."
Long banned in most parts of the UK by the country's tradition-heavy justice system, televised trials have made small but significant inroads. Proceedings in Britain's Supreme Court have been carried live online since 2011. Last year filmmakers won rare access to Scotland's High Court, broadcasting footage from inside the court as part of a documentary called "The Murder Trial."
