This title deals with the different procedural and factual situations that give rise to an abuse of process, covering the whole of criminal litigation, from pre-charge advisory stage to appellant level. A number of different topics are examined from a case law perspective; covering disclosure, entrapment, delay, loss of evidence, abuse of executive power, adverse publicity, ability to participate. Skeleton arguments are included for practical assistance. The third edition covers all recent important case law decisions, updating specific topic areas: * Case management (R v Boardman [2015] EWCA Crim 175) * Post-trial abuse (Tague [2015] EWHC 3576(Admin)) * Illegally obtained evidence (Public Prosecution Service of Northern Ireland v Elliott [2013] UKSC 32) * Linked civil proceedings (Clayton [2014] 2 Cr App R 20) * Disclosure Herbert Austin [2013] EWCA Crim 1028,(S)D and S(T) [2015] 2 Cr.App.R.2 7) * Entrapment (Wilson v The Queen [2015] NZSC 189) and Palmer [2015] Crim L R 153) * Delay and serious specific prejudice to a fair trial (R [2015] EWCA Crim 1941) * Destruction and retention of evidence (DPP v Petrie [2015] EWCA 48 (Admin); Spalluto [2015] EWHC 2211 (Admin) * Local authority prosecutions (Clayton [2014] EWCA Crim 1030) * Special measures (OP [2014] EWHC 1944 (Admin) * Legal representation (Crawley [2014] EWCA Crim 1028)
