Overview

The second edition of this title provides detailed analysis of the far-reaching implications that the Human Rights Act 1998 continues to have on every aspect of the criminal justice system. The Act has created new challenges to existing legislation and new lines of defence in criminal trials. It also introduces right governing the treatment of suspects and affects the use of evidence in criminal trials.

This fully-updated new edition takes account of legislative developments such as the introduction of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 and the Criminal Justice and Courts Act 2000. Full consideration is given of the first significant decisions interpreting the Human Rights Act and recent case law from the European Court of Human Rights.

The text has also been expanded to give more detailed consideration of several vital issues including the effect of Article 6 upon the right of the accused to remain silent, the searching of premises in the light of Article 8, and the circumstances under which telephone tapping and the interception of mail are authorized.
