This book has set out on a case law approach to lay bare the basic judicial precedent espousing the current position of the law in relation to our criminal litigation. In doing this, great reliance was placed mainly on judgment of the Supreme Court, except in few cases when resort is made to the Court of Appeal.
Having been part of public prosecutions, I consider it worthwhile, to, in a quick reference approach, produce user friendly manual that will assit everybody engaged in criminal litigation, either as public prosecutor or defence counsel.
Basic principles on law and procedure, evidence, proof, constitutional guarantees, prosecutorial powers of the Attorneys-General. Company law and finally, appeal have been dealt with in this book. This I believed has to a large extent covered most of the everyday issues encountered in criminal litigation. The Administration of Criminal Justice Act has also been annexed to the text
