New Zealand - Court of Appeal - Practice - Appellants appealing against conviction without leave in accordance with domestic law - Appellants applying for legal aid - Court of Appeal refusing application for legal aid and subsequently dismissing appeals ex parte - Whether practice in accordance with domestic law.
On the hearing of a number of appeals against the decision of the Court of Appeal of New Zealand to dismiss ex parte the appeals against conviction brought by the appellants pursuant to the domestic law, following the refusal of their applications for legal aid, the Privy Council ruled, inter alia, that the practice of the Court of Appeal was not in accordance with the domestic law, as the court was only empowered to dismiss the appeals after a proper hearing and accordingly allowed the appeals.
