Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of TERENCE PATRICK EWING) v KENNETH GEORGE DAVIS (2007)

PUBLISHED July 2, 2007

[2007] EWHC 1730 (Admin)

A judge had erred in holding that a third party private prosecutor was required to establish that a prosecution of an offence constituted not just an individual grievance but had a public interest and benefit, as there was no authority for such a test and it was for Parliament, not the courts, to limit the right of private prosecution.
