Solicitor Martyn Day has told a tribunal that he did not consider the impact on soldiers of making allegations that they tortured and killed Iraqi detainees. Day, the senior partner at human rights firm Leigh Day, was asked repeatedly during today’s hearing at the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal whether he stopped to think what effect his claims were having on those he accused.The tribunal heard last week from Colonel James Coote, a major at the Battle of Danny Boy in 2004, who said his sleeping disorder returned following allegations made public at a press conference held in 2008 by Day, alongside Public Interest Lawyers director Phil Shiner. Martyn DaySenior partner, Leigh DayDay was asked by Timothy Dutton QC, representing the SRA, whether he ‘paused’ before the conference to think of those whose lives would be affected.The solicitor replied: ‘I paused to make sure we were satisfied there was decent evidence to put forward the points we were making. It is always true, when you bring a claim, there are people on the other side who are upset you are bringing a claim. I don’t think it is my job to worry about that.’Dutton asked again whether Day thought of the ‘serious impact’ on Coote and his colleagues.Day responded: ‘We wanted to make sure there was a public inquiry. Colonel Coote made the point he felt the whole matter had been resolved in 2004/05… we were right to press for a public inquiry. That is simply the way the justice system works.’Dutton asked once more: ‘Did you give any consideration to the impact of what you and Mr Shiner were saying on Major Coote?’ Day replied: ‘I thought I already answered that. No.’Day said the press conference was an ‘adjunct’ to the process of litigation, but Dutton said Day had ‘lost sight’ of the effects of his words and questioned whether he had ‘lost [his] professional independence’ at the press conference.The solicitor said: ‘We were saying to the public, having had the opportunity to interview these people [the clients alleging mistreatment] and seeing the strength of the other evidence, we thought from what we had seen it was more than likely to be true than not, but more crucially there had to be a public inquiry.’Asked by Dutton whether he accepted his conduct was reckless, Day replied: ‘Not for second.’ He added: ‘It seems to me what we were doing was in the best role of a solicitor, which was being independent of your own government and the Ministry of Defence and getting to the bottom of allegations made against our armed forces.’Earlier, Day said he felt his clients were motivated by seeking the truth rather than getting money from litigation.He was questioned on comments made by Shiner at the press conference that those listening should not believe ‘those with most to hide’.Dutton said: ‘What you and he were doing was inviting the press to treat the army as liars.’Day said: ‘He [Shiner] was saying there has been such significant evidence emerging from what happened in Iraq that to suggest it was just a couple of bad apples responsible for the odd incident was wrong and there was much more systematic abuse taking place.’Leigh Day and three solicitors, Day, Sapna Malik and Anna Crowther, all deny wrongdoing. The hearing continues.
Ericsson is adding new hardware and software products to the Ericsson Radio System portfolio, further enhancing the agility and speed with which communication service providers can roll out their 5G networks. Ericsson is launching the RAN Compute portfolio, which responds to the service provider’s need for greater flexibility in the deployment of Radio Access Network (RAN) software and hardware functions.RAN Compute is an architecture that allows service providers to flexibly distribute RAN functions – such as beamforming and radio control – where needed to fine-tune use case performance while also lowering total cost of ownership. The RAN Compute portfolio includes all the current basebands in addition to four new RAN Compute products that provide up to three times the capacity of current basebands. Two new RAN Compute Basebands enable service providers to deploy RAN functions centrally, or at the radio site, while two new RAN Compute Radio Processors enable RAN functions to be placed closer to the radio for enhanced mobile broadband, ultra-low latency applications while reducing site footprint.The company is also launching its new Ericsson Spectrum Sharing software, expanding the versatility of Ericsson Radio System for 5G deployments. This gives service providers a greater opportunity to turn on 5G and speed up network coverage. Ericsson Spectrum Sharing enables a smooth and fast network migration through simultaneous and dynamic support of 4G and 5G within the same spectrum band using the Ericsson Radio System, once operators are ready to make the transition. The new functionality can be implemented through a remote software installation on Ericsson Radio System radios shipped since 2015.This capability will allow communication service providers to deliver nationwide 5G coverage with a much more flexible spectrum migration strategy – removing the need for dedicating existing 4G spectrum assets to 5G statically, which would negatively impact 4G performance. The solution is Ericsson’s innovative approach based on the 3GPP Rel 15 standard and simplifies adoption by 5G device manufacturers.To make it easier to deploy 5G in high-spectrum bands to boost capacity within urban areas, Ericsson is aligning its transport network products to meet the capacity and aesthetics with the Street Macro radios. For example, adapting the Fronthaul 6000 to ensure an integrated and complete Street Macro solution for millimeter wave 5G deployment.All solutions will become commercially available in the second half of 2019 and are going to be featured at Mobile World Congress Americas 2018 being held in Los Angeles from September 12-14.
