The press team provides advice and support to judicial office-holders on interview bids, misreporting of cases, the handling of potentially controversial issues, and any other media issues.
Operating a 24/7 service so it can respond to media interest as it arises, the team also anticipates wherever possible high profile and controversial issues and prepares statements and responses in advance, involving the relevant members of the judiciary.
The press team draws the media’s attention to significant judgments, speeches and statements, providing written or electronic copies when available.
