IN recent years the doctrine of abuse of process has been invoked with increasing frequency in cases of police impropriety, prosecutorial delay and other conduct thought to detract significantly from procedural fairness. The doctrine has developed from case to case in a characteristic common law manner, and this makes it ripe for the kind of detailed and searching review provided here by Dr Andrew Choo. Many of the questions raised -- such as, whether abuse of process should ever lead to an automatic stay of process or always to judicial discretion; when, if there is evidence of police malpractice, this doctrine should apply rather than the court's discretion to exclude evidence -- are of interest to practitioners as well as to academic lawyers. This monograph seeks to advance the cause of legality and 'judicial integrity' by proposing new parameters for the doctrine of abuse of process. It is a most welcome contribution to the series.
