Derived from the renowned multi-volume International Encyclopaedia of Laws, this book provides a practical analysis of criminal law in Botswana. An introduction presents the necessary background information about the framework and sources of the criminal justice system, and then proceeds to a detailed examination of the enforcement of the criminal law, the grounds for and modes of criminal liability, the defences that diminish or excuse criminal liability, the classicisation of criminal offences, and the sanctions system. Coverage of criminal procedure focuses on prosecuting authorities and the modes of initiating prosecutions, pre-trial proceedings, trial stage, judgment and post-judgment stages. Its succinct yet scholarly nature, as well as the practical quality of the information it provides, make this book a valuable resource for criminal lawyers, prosecutors, law enforcement officers, and criminal court judges handling cases connected with Botswana. Academics and researchers, as well as the various international organizations in the field, will welcome this very useful guide, and will appreciate its value in the study of comparative criminal law.
