Joseph Hart, Ciaran Rankin and Robin Kitching involved in historic sexual allegations case arising out of a significant police operation on the Falkland Islands

R v Butler and Crowie 

Crime/Overseas Territory Law

This was a case involving historic sexual allegations arising out of a significant police operation on the Falkland Islands.

The case resulted in a conviction after trial on one of the counts against the main Defendant, but one of the Defendants was acquitted on the only count against them.

Legally the case was a complex one dealing with issues of the provision of extra-territorial evidence; reluctant witnesses in other jurisdictions; third party material and defendant costs orders. Deans Court’s Ciarán Rankin and Robin Kitching defended, whilst Deans Court’s Joseph Hart led local advocate Stuart Walker for the Prosecution.
