Highgate school pupils put questions to London’s chief crown prosecutor
London’s chief crown prosecutor has visited a Highgate school to congratulate its pupils on winning a capital-wide competition.
Baljit Ubhey answered questions from teenagers on double jeopardy and culturally sensitive crimes at St Aloysius’ College, in Hornsey Lane, during a visit last week.
She was there to praise a group of five Year 9 pupils, who won a competition to raise awareness of modern-day slavery launched by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) for London.
The winning group will also get the chance to visit the CPS London headquarters.
Ms Ubhey said: “I was delighted to be able to meet the students today and tell them a bit more about what we do at the Crown Prosecution Service.”
