Description

Summarises the Court of Appeal decision in 'R v Antonievic & Ors' [2013] NZCA 483 (15 Oct 2013), an appeal against a High Court decision ordering that prosecutions against a motorcycle club be stayed, the High Court having determined that police actions during an undercover investigation of the club, during which the police prepared a fake search warrant and laid false charges against an undercover officer, rendered the trials an abuse of process. Focuses on the Court of Appeal's determination as to whether permitting the trials to proceed would be seen as the Court condoning police misconduct.
