Formatted abstract
A brief discussion on Sang who held that English law did not recognise the defence of entrapment, and moreover, that there was no judicial discretion to exclude evidence simply because it was obtained by an improper or unfair means, or by the activities of an agent provocateur, is presented. A brief summary about the facts and certified questions of law followed by a critical evaluation of the House of Lords' approach to entrapment in Looseley, is provided.
