IN THE MATTER OF JAMES CAHILL (2013)
PUBLISHED December 20, 2013
 EWHC 4025 (QB)
In fixing the minimum term of imprisonment for a life prisoner that had been transferred to England from Ireland, a court restated the approach to be taken where the offence had been committed before the provisions for transferred prisoners under the Criminal Justice Act 2003 Sch.21 had come into force. The court had to establish the appropriate minimum terms under the Act and the sentencing regime existing at the time of the offence, before taking the lower of the two.
