The Special Criminal Court: Practice and Procedure

The Special Criminal Court: Practice and Procedure

The Special Criminal Court: Practice and Procedure is the first general textbook in four decades to cover all aspects of the Special Criminal Court. It is a comprehensive and detailed review of the Court's rulings, legislative developments, and procedural and evidential rules. In light of the fact that the Special Criminal Court is a creature of statute, the procedural rules are extraordinarily specific and this book sets these out comprehensively and clearly, so as to be accessible and useful to the practitioner. It provides practitioners with all relevant material on the practical considerations, procedural requirements, and evidential issues specific to the Special Criminal Court.

The book covers the range of offences typically tried by the Court, and contains detailed discussions on:

  • The most recent case law and legislative developments
  • Subversive crime and the special evidential requirements relating to subversive crime
  • The rules of the Special Criminal Court and the specific procedure applicable in that court
  • The challenges taken to the Special Criminal Court regime in light of the Constitution and the European Convention on Human Rights
  • Witness protection
  • Investigative powers
  • Surveillance
  • Accomplice evidence
  • Disclosure and privilege in the context of the Special Criminal Court
  • Organised crime
