Practice and Procedure

R v CHOMIR ALI (2011)

PUBLISHED March 31, 2011

[2011] EWCA Crim 1011

The decision in Taxquet v Belgium (926/05) (2012) 54 E.H.R.R. 26 made it clear that the United Kingdom system of criminal jury trials, including the form of directions customarily given to juries, was compliant with human rights legislation. Taxquet did not require further assistance to be given to juries and did not create an obligation to ask for a special verdict.
