Abstract:

In this paper, I argue that the decision in R v Gnango only makes sense if the doctrine of oblique intention is invoked. I also assert that the joint perpetration/joint causation theory is not applicable on the facts of the case. Similarly, the provocative act murder doctrine is also not applicable on the facts. Finally, I assert that the narrow interpretation given the incidental party/ victim rule is not supported by the existing authorities.
