Criminal law Trial. The defendant was convicted of resisting a police officer in the execution of his duty despite his submission that he had no case to answer. On appeal, the Administrative Court held that the police officer had taken hold of the defendant's arm before forming the settled intention to arrest him. On that basis, the police officer had ceased acting in the execution of his duty and the defendant, accordingly, had had no case to answer.
