It seems some is waking up to the fact that many recidivist criminal are availing of free legal aid.
Not only do they get a solicitor, but SC and JC if required.
Very cursory examination of their ability is made if any.
Its now proposed to check the PPS of anyone claiming free legal aid (FLA)
Last year this cost 55 million euro.
About time given some of the reprobates using this right frequently.
