Former Chief Crown Prosecutor Nazir Afzal draws on his acclaimed 2020 memoir in a DARE Liberty Lecture with Opera North.

As the former Chief Crown Prosecutor for North West England, it was Nazir Afzal’s job to make sure the most complex, violent and harrowing crimes made it to court, and that their perpetrators were convicted.

From violence against women and girls to child sexual abuse and honour-based violence, he has been at the forefront of some of the most high-profile cases in the country during his 24-year career. This vital and fascinating talk draws on his acclaimed 2020 memoir, The Prosecutor.
