UPDATE: R v Jogee - joint enterprise decision from the Supreme Court thumbnail

The Supreme Court have directed that that Ameen Jogee will be retried on the charge of murder, or manslaughter in the alternative.  

This case hit the headlines on 18th February 2016 when the Supreme Court handed down a judgement stating that joint enterprise had been "wrongly interpreted' for over three decades.

Jogee was sentenced to life imprisonment in 2012 for the murder of Paul Fyfe.

The Supreme Court have stressed the 'utmost importance" of the necessity for Jogee to receive a fair trial despite the vast publicity regarding the landmark judgement.  The court additionally observed that the findings in the first trial and their interpretation and observations upon them, should not be relevant to the jury's considerations in the re-trial.
