Bartholomew Dalton writes on prosecution bail appeals for Criminal Law Week

30 Apr 2024

Bartholomew Dalton has written a commentary article for Criminal Law Week about the recent cases of R. (Molina) v Crown Court at Snaresbrook and Hammond v Governor of Winchester Prison, both of which relate to prosecution bail appeals.

In his commentary, Bartholomew (who recently obtained a writ or habeas corpus against Wandsworth prison following the unlawful detention of a client) argues that the cases are “two very stark examples of how the prosecution and court should not deal with prosecution bail appeals under section 1 of the 1993 Act.
