Regina v Van Hoogstraten: CACD 12 Dec 2003

The prosecution appealed against the refusal of the crown court to remit the case for retrial.
Held: The court had no jurisdiction to entertain an appeal against this ruling because it was not within the ambit of section 29(2) of the 1996 Act. That may be satisfactory because it seemed to be common ground that if an attempt had been made to quash the indictment at arraignment (by means of a request for particulars followed by an application to quash), or if such an attempt had been made after the jury was empanelled, in neither instance would the Crown have any right of appeal. The court was unhappy with this conclusion, but could not avoid it. It could not order a retrial.
