It is established in the UK that court cases should be heard in public.

This principle of open justice is acclaimed on a number of grounds: as a safeguard against judicial error, deterrent to perjury, to assist the deterrent function of trials and to permit the revelation of matters of public interest.

Costs include victim surcharge and courts charges.
