R V DORING (2002)

PUBLISHED June 24, 2002

[2002] EWCA Crim 1695

The offence of acting as a company director while being an undisclosed bankrupt as well as being a director of company known by a prohibited name was an offence of strict liability. Therefore, whether the defendant was concerned or had taken part in the management of a company was a question of fact for the jury and did not depend on the defendant's own view of her actions. This case is reported at Times, June 27, 2002 and (2002) Crim LR 817.
