Some late night boredom has meant I have uncovered a few useful links in relation to Joint Enterprise on the internet.
Directing the jury- Parties to Crime: Participation (Simple joint Enterprise) (Chapter 5: The Prosecution and Principles of Criminal Liability). http://www.judiciary.gov.uk/Resources/JCO/Documents/Training/benchbook_criminal_2010.pdf
http://www.cps.gov.uk/legal/assets/uploads/files/Joint_Enterprise.pdf – Chargin guidelines CPS
http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201012/cmselect/cmjust/1597/1597.pdf House of Commons Justice Committee.
http://www.cps.gov.uk/publications/performance/joint_enterprise/jed_executive_summary%20_2013.pdf gov statistics regarding murder & manslaughter.
I am always happy to hear from those who had been convicted under joint enterprise for murder/manslaughter or the relatives of those that have- Such information is invaluable in my research quest (so feel free to contact me via twitter)- one day my thesis will be complete, hopefully highlighting the injustice and inconsistencies in this area of law.
