Geoffrey Robertson QC, a leading human rights lawyer who is a Consulting Editor for Interlitq, has been cited in “Public denied juicy end to cricket drama” (Paul Thomas, The New Zealand Herald, 27.04.13): Defamation is unique in that the burden of proof is on the defendant whose statement is presumed false unless proven otherwise. As the eminent human rights lawyer Geoffrey Robertson, QC, put it in a letter to the Guardian: “In all other civil actions claimants bear this burden, which is logical and fair since they are the party using the process to drag others into court.”
