Inquiry: Does the criminal justice system treat disabled people fairly?

The EHRC want to understand the experiences of disabled defendants or accused in the criminal justice system. People who are charged with a criminal offence are called ‘defendants’ in England and Wales, and ‘accused’ in Scotland.
