R (oao AB) v Uxbridge Youth Court [2023] (High Court, King’s Bench Division)

21.11.2023

Margo represented a child charged with robbery, arising out of his being trafficked. The CPS had applied the adult test to the decision to prosecute, and in refusing an application to stay proceedings as an abuse of process the Youth Court upheld this error. After a Judicial Review was issued the CPS agreed to remake the decision. Margo was led by Chris Butler KC at an oral hearing to determine whether criminal or civil costs should be available to the Claimant.
