Statute case law and practice in Northern Ireland
Please take the time to explore these links. Once you get used to what is provided, the power to enquire about the law is properly substantial. Suggestions for further leading cases, statutes, links and corrections are always welcome. I give my warm thanks to those who have suggested material.

Case law:
Leading Cases:
    Maye, Re (Northern Ireland); HL 6-Feb-2008 - The defendant had admitted charges of obtaining property by deception.

The DPP applied to vary the confiscation order to allow for the anticipated increase in his funds. He had also since settled an action against the police in which he was awarded £2,500 for false imprisonment.
