Sun, 25 October 7:30pm

As a Chief Prosecutor, Nazir Afzal OBE brought some of the most high profile, harrowing and complex cases to court including domestic violence, paedophilia, trafficking and honour killings.  He was at the forefront of the British legal system, giving a voice to the voiceless.  A memoir of struggle and survival as well as crime and punishment, The Prosecutor is a searing insight into the justice system and a powerful story of one man’s pursuit of the truth.
