The Presumption of Innocence and Irish Criminal Law: Whittling the Golden Thread

Claire Hamilton

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    The right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty has been described as the 'golden thread' running through the web of the English criminal law and a 'fundamental postulate' of Irish criminal law which enjoys constitutional protection. The purpose of this book is to consider whether the reality matches the rhetoris surrounding this central precept of our criminal law and to consider its efficacy in light of recent legislative innovations.
