This article deals with the double-jeopardy implications of the state-initiated appeal from a comparative perspective. The main focus is whether current South African legislation and common-law rules which provide for the various types of state-initiated appeals set out in Section 33(3)(e) of the Constitution of South Africa, can be reconciled with constitutional protection against double jeopardy.
