Criminal Memoirs

booksEnglish PEN have produced a briefing document on the proposed new Criminal Memoirs law.

A new scheme will seize assets from ex-offenders who write about their crimes. All types of art and media will be affected, and there are few safeguards to prevent abuse.

English PEN is calling on the Government to withdraw the proposed new law from the Coroners & Justice Bill, and to consult with prisoner groups and rehabilitation charities.
