Practice and Procedure

R v (1) HOUNSHAM (2) MAYES (3) BLAKE (2005)

PUBLISHED May 27, 2005

The soliciting, by the police, of funds from potential victims of fraud was fraught with danger as well as being outside police powers. However, on the facts of the instant case, the conduct of the police fell short of conduct that required the prosecution of the alleged perpetrators of the fraud to be stayed.
