Speakers on the night:
Sue Rodham – Criminal Barrister
One of the top criminal barristers in the country, who has a large criminal practice and a wealth of experience dealing with criminals and has worked on many high profile cases over her career.
Sue Rodham, has for many years been recommended in Crime by Chambers and Partners and described as a ‘Leader at the Bar’. Miss Rodham has a weighty criminal practice and has during her years at the Bar undertaken much high profile and difficult cases, both as junior and leading junior and is respected by her peers as a skilful and successful trial advocate.
Tom Lloyd – Former chief constable of Cambridgeshire.
Tom Lloyd has had a long career working throughout the police force on any high profile cases and has a wealth of experience and some great insights and controversial opinions on drug laws that make for a fascinating talk.
Mr. Lloyd controversially has called for the legalising of drugs. He has said he now regrets investigating and arresting drug users during his career as a policeman in London and Cambridge. “When you think about arresting somebody who is in possession of drugs, are you really catching a criminal?” he asked. “When it came to law enforcement I think I caused more harm than good.” He is chairman of Whistleblowers UK. He said: We have a simple, if ambitious, vision for the future of this country which is an environment where whistleblowers feel confident that they can expose wrongdoing without fear of personal loss or detriment.”
Ian Puddick – Businessman, who fell foul of the law
Mr. Puddick is a businessman, who found himself at the centre of a multi-million pound police operation, after his wife had an affair with her well-connected boss. Mr. Puddick contacted the senior executive to express his displeasure and his life changed forever. He ended up being the target of a global investigations agency, who had contacts within the City of London police. Attempts were made to frame him as a drug dealer, lock him away and he ended being arrested by the anti-terrorist squad. His is an intriguing tale of how big business are claimed to have manipulated the law because they saw him as a trouble maker, who could damage the company’s reputation.
