Notes

"August 2003"--Inside front cover.

"In February 2003, the Premier of New South Wales, Hon Bob Carr MP, announced that his Government would legislate changes to the common law doctrine of double jeopardy. One of the proposed reforms, as initially outlined, would allow the Director of Public Prosecutions to apply to the Court of Criminal Appeal to quash an acquittal for murder, manslaughter, or a crime that carried a maximum penalty of life imprisonment, where compelling fresh evidence emerges that strongly suggests guilt and could not reasonably have been available at the first trial."--p. 49.
