Directive 2010/64/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 October 2010 on the right to interpretation and translation in criminal proceedings was transposed into UK domestic law by 27 October 2013 when it came into force. The Government has no plan currently to alter those provisions.
Police used an interpreting company that recruited unqualified translators even after a criminal trial collapsed because one of its linguists told a suspect what to say.
