London, UK (Law Gazette): The company running the controversial new courtroom interpreting service is offering cash incentives to interpreters who recruit friends, the Gazette has learned, as it emerged than nine out of 10 court interpreters are boycotting the service. An online poll of 1,206 interpreters surveyed by campaign group Interpreters for Justice (IFJ) revealed that 90% are refusing to work for Applied Language Solutions (ALS), which was awarded the contract to provide interpreters to criminal justice agencies.
