R (on the application of ARSHAD) (Claimant) v SOUTHWARK CROWN COURT (Defendant) & MOHAMMED BUTT (Interested Party) (2011)

PUBLISHED May 5, 2011

[2011] EWHC 2728 (Admin)

A Crown Court judge had been incorrect to allow an extension of custody time limits where a trial date was adjourned as a result of the Crown Prosecution Service's failure to exercise due diligence and expedition in disclosing evidence on which it intended to rely.
