Can one person see the bigger picture and be a catalyst for change?
I chat to Nazir Afzal OBE, former Chief Crown Prosecutor of the Crown Prosecution Service and former CEO of Police & Crime Commissioners. Nazir has led the prosecution of some of the most high-profile cases in the UK including a number of honour killing and forced marriage cases, the murder of two police officers and the conviction of a large child sexual exploitation ring. During his decades working in the criminal justice system, Nazir has personally led and driven change whilst surrounded by dissenting voices, finding himself on an official Al Qaeda death list, targeted by the far right and at times living under police protection, with his kids travelling to school in taxis and being taught how to use the panic alarm. However, one man’s pursuit of justice and doing the right thing stood steadfast.
