The Prosecutor

The Prosecutor

Nazir Afzal knows a thing or two about justice. As a Chief Prosecutor, it was his job to make sure the most complex, violent and harrowing crimes made it to court, and that their perpetrators were convicted. From the Rochdale sex ring to the earliest prosecutions for honour killing and modern slavery. His story begins in 1960s Birmingham as a young boy facing racist violence and the tragic death of a young family member. This sets him on the path to his ground-breaking career, enabling him to help communities that the conventional justice system ignores and giving a voice to the voiceless.
