Criminal Procedure Handbook is available in English and Afrikaans. It is a revised and updated eleventh edition which introduces the reader to the fundamental principles and values underlying this field. It is in two parts. The first part deals with selected general principles of the law of criminal procedure and the second part with the criminal process which is in turn sub-divided into four phases, namely pre-trial investigative criminal procedure, the trial, sentence and post-verdict and sentence remedies of review, appeal, mercy, indemnity and free pardon. An appendix to the handbook contains the schedules to the Criminal Procedure Act 51 of 1977, which is a helpful source, since the schedules are often referred to substantively in the text. Selected sections of the constitution are also contained in the appendix. These sections constitute the most relevant aspects of the bill of rights that feature in the context of the text.
