Civil courts for rights holders

Post by Treadmore » Sun Jan 17, 2010 2:33 pm

After the recent Oink case http://www.gazettelive.co.uk/news/teess ... -25615291/ the defence solicitor said: “The Court of Appeal has recently ruled that the criminal courts are not the correct forum for rights holders to seek to protect these rights and this is the role of the civil courts."

Does anyone know which Court Appeal case is referenced?

I think this was Gilham v R [2009] EWCA Crim 2293 (09 November 2009). The system won't allow me to post a link here because I'm a newbie, so I'll try and pm you the link.
