Abstract

This article contains a comparative study of the use of the doctrine of common intention to secure the conviction of joint offenders for murder where an homicide is committed in furtherance of their common intention. The cases appear to be in conflict but the conflicts can be explained on the basis of the policy objectives courts seek to achieve.
