New edition of Archbold Hong Kong updates on Criminal Procedure
Archbold Hong Kong 2022 is now published (in print) as two handy volumes (rather than the massive single volume of previous editions).
Volume 1 covers criminal procedure, evidence and sentencing and Volume 2 covers the general principles of criminal liability, human rights and specific offence.
As more cases under the National Security Law come before the courts, these developments will be covered in Chapters 2 (The Criminal Jurisdiction of the Courts), 5 (Sentences and Orders on Conviction), 15 (Police Powers, Confessions and Discretion to Exclude Evidence), 19 (Human Rights), 26 (National Security), 41 (Proceeds of Crime) and 42 (Surrender of Fugitive Offenders). In addition, recent developments in the areas of bail, sentencing and evidence will be covered.
The Honourable Mr Justice Bokhary GBM, NPJ continues as Editor-in-Chief and Professor Simon Young of the University of Hong Kong serves as General Editor.
