Supreme Court must address the Press after every major ruling - Davis Opoku

He believes an address of the media by the Supreme Court is well placed in modern practices, sighting the recent case of R v Jogee, where the UK Supreme Court, after a 37-Page ruling, issued a 4-page Press Summary on the court’s decision to overturn a wrong principle on the law of complicity.
