Publicity is the very soul of justice. It is the surest of all guards against improbity. It keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial.

The Small Places is an interesting blog by legal researcher Lucy Series.

In Is publicity always the soul of justice? she quotes famous passages by legal and social reformer Jeremy Bentham (1748 – 1832) :

Publicity is the very soul of justice. It is the keenest spur to exertion, and the surest of all guards against improbity. It keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial.

In the darkness of secrecy, sinister interest and evil in every shape, have full swing. Only in proportion as publicity has place can any of the checks, applicable to judicial injustice, operate. Where there is no publicity there is no justice.

Only time will tell how gagging orders will unfold – whether for celebrities who want to hide their affairs or Social Services who want to hide child snatching

People who have not only been bankrupted but also been served with a ‘civil restraint order’ might want to contact senior Tory MP John Whittingdale who “tries to track down details of what power-grabbing judges are up to”.
