Practice and Procedure

R v A (2008)

PUBLISHED July 10, 2008

A terminating ruling was reversed as the decision to terminate the proceedings should not have been made until after the accused taxi driver had given evidence, as his knowledge of a drug deal that took place whilst the taxi was stopped should have been tested and it was for him to prove his defence.
