EBU Prosecution Panel

The EBU Prosecution Panel is a newly formed panel made up of volunteer EBU Members who may be called upon to serve in an official capacity to decide whether there may be a case to answer if there is a complaint under the EBU disciplinary rules and also to prosecute the case should it go ahead.

A panel of three members will initially be asked to decide on a case referred to it whether there is a case to answer. If so one member of the panel (not necessarily one involved in the original panel) will be asked to lead the prosecution.

In addition to appointing the Prosecution and Disciplinary Panels the EBU Board also appoints a Pro Bono Advisor. Again he is a volunteer member of the EBU who will advise, free of charge, any EBU member charged with an offence on the procedures to be followed.

The current make up is as follows:

Pro Bono Advisor: Steve Barnfield
Prosecution Panel: David Bakhshi, Heather Bakhshi, Simon Cocheme, Dick Davey, Ron Davis, Tony Forrester, Mike Huggins, Jane Jensen, Fiona Littlewood, Clive Owen, Martin Pool, Shirley Pritchard, Bryan Willis
