This book weaves together the many fragmented threads of sentencing pronouncements and organises them into a series of sentencing principles. Each principle discusses the source of the relevant principle, the rationale behind it, and the issues relating to its application.
Both local sentencing precedents and foreign cases and literature are provided as illustration. Also included are parliamentary speeches, judicial and extra-judicial pronouncements, and a comprehensive list of local articles and legal commentaries.
Written primarily for practitioners, academics, law students and the public, the discussion and commentaries take a non-prescriptive approach and are arranged into succinct reader-friendly paragraphs and sub-paragraphs to facilitate easy references and searches.
