Dyer on The Problem of Media Entrapment

Andrew Dyer, University of Sydney Faculty of Law, has published The Problem of Media Entrapment at 2015 Criminal Law Review 311. Here is the abstract.

This article examines whether any remedy should be available to accused persons who have been entrapped by the media. The argument presented here is that, contrary to the general flavour of the judicial decisions and academic commentary concerning this issue, a stay of proceedings for abuse of process should be available in media entrapment cases. Properly viewed, there is a breach of the accused’s human rights and/or the rule of law in such cases, warranting the provision of this remedy to him/her.
