Self-defence law changes opposed

A local advocate has given his verdict on plans by the Ministry of Justice for England and Wales to review and clarify laws governing the use of reasonable force in self-defence and in the defence of property.

John Wright says changes are unnecessary, because legistation in the Isle of Man and across the water is already very clear.
