Title:The attitude of the Rhodesian courts towards police traps
Author:Feltoe, G.
Periodical:The Rhodesian Law Journal
Geographic term:Zimbabwe
Abstract:The author reviews some Rhodesian cases and points out that, although the Rhodesian courts naturally regard the laying of traps as distasteful, in none of these cases has a conviction actually been set aside because of the court's disapproval of the method. The picture that emerges is, with one or two queries, a fairly clear picture of the limitations within which the courts would like to see trapping confined. The author suggests how these limitations could be enforced by excluding evidence improperly obtained and by prosecuting the trapper in a serious case in addition to reducing sentences as at present.
