Agius v Court of Magistrates, Malta

Author / Contributor: John Jones QC
Agius v Court of Magistrates, Malta
Issue: Whether there was clear and cogent evidence to rebut the presumption that a Category 1 country would honour its human rights obligations under the European Convention on Human Rights. All authorities which required a human rights inquiry under s21 only in wholly exceptional circumstances were not to be followed. The correct approach was that given in Targosinski v Poland.
