R v MAXO TIDO (2011)

PUBLISHED June 15, 2011

[2011] UKPC 16

Under the law of the Bahamas the death penalty should be imposed only in the most extreme and exceptional cases. The murder of a 16-year-old girl did not come within that exceptional category where it was unplanned and was not accompanied by unusual violence.
