Abstract

This article explores a recent comment piece by Professor Michael Bohlander in which he contends that there is a clash between the new assisting and encouraging provisions (Pt 2 of the Serious Crime Act 2007) and Criminal Attempts Act 1981 s.1(4)(b) which excludes liability for attempted complicity. It will be argued that Bohlander’s recommendation that the latter should be repealed is unsound both in terms of the viability and the desirability of allowing an offence of attempted complicity. The only exception to this, also explored in the article, is the potential for an offence of attempting to procure a no-fault offence.
