Justice CommitteeWritten evidence from Amjad Parvez

I am a professional Interpreter working in CJS from last 15 years. Since MOJ outsourced Interpreting to ALS I have stopped working in court, because of the rates ALS is paying to the Interpreters. ALS own Interpreters are unqualified, inexperienced and not vetted. that,s why a lot of cases have been collapsed in courts. It’s a very embarrassing situation for the MOJ.
