  • ARTICLES
  • DIFFICULTY IN OBTAINING A FAIR TRIAL IN TERRORISM CASES
        Justice A G Whealy
        p.743                                                                                      +cite        
        The broad range of new anti-terrorist legislation, with its significant penalties, places special demands on the trial judge. It raises special challenges to the need to ensure that a fair trial is maintained, every person having a fundamental right to a fair trial. This article is concerned with the impact of new terrorism-related laws on the duties and responsibilities of judges in criminal trials. It also suggests a number of practical ways in which a trial judge should seek to confront the legislative difficulties to ensure that the accused is dealt with fairly in the criminal justice system.
  • REGISTERING A REGISTERED FOREIGN JUDGMENT
        Ian Molloy
        p.760                                                                                      +cite        
        A recent article in this Journal raised the question of whether an Australian court may enforce a foreign judgment which is itself founded upon the judgment of another, different foreign court. This article deals with two cases in which the issue has arisen for decision, one involving registration of a foreign judgment in Australia, the other an attempt to register an Australian judgment in Papua New Guinea.

        2007 marks the centenary of the opening of London's Central Criminal Court, universally known as the Old Bailey. Since the Middle Ages it had been the site of Newgate Gaol and then a court. This article recalls some of the judges, counsel, and accused who have peopled the Old Bailey since 1907 -- Horace Amory, Horace Rayner, Rayner Goddard, Lord Haw-Haw, Hawley Harvey Crippen, Hartley Shawcross, Henry Dickens, Henry Curtis-Brown, George Smith and George Carman.
