Abstract

Comments on Kangers v Latvia (35726/10) (ECtHR) on whether the domestic court's conviction of the applicant for a repeat offence at a time when his appeal against conviction for the original offence was pending breached his right to be presumed innocent, protected by ECHR art.6(2). Notes the dissenting judgment's approach to issues of timing, and criticism of the majority's reasoning concerning when the presumption of innocence was breached.
