Title:The jury and the burden of proof
Author:Kludze, A.K.P.ISNI
Periodical:University of Ghana Law Journal
Geographic term:Ghana
Subject:criminal procedure
Abstract:A considerable body of public opinion, and even of professional legal opinion, has been questioning the suitability in Ghana of the system of trial by jury in criminal cases which has been inherited from the English criminal procedure. Concern of this paper is the current law and practice. An historical conspectus of the evolution of the jury system is presented, in an effort to find out if the system as originally conceived was based on the present presumption of the innocence of an accused person.
