This is the second of two Commission reports which examine options for reform of the law relating to criminal liability for encouraging or assisting another person to commit an offence (the previous report 'Inchoate liability for assisting and encouraging crime' was published in July 2006 as Cm. 6878 (Law Com. no. 300, ISBN 9780101687829). This report focuses on the law of secondary liability and examines the problems with the law as it currently stands; the differences between inchoate liability and secondary liability; recommendations to introduce statutory schemes of secondary liability and of innocent agency and a new offence of causing the commission of a no fault offence; defences and exemptions; and extra-territorial jurisdiction. It includes the text of two draft bills: Participating in Crime Bill and Participating in Crime (Jurisdiction, Procedure and Consequential Provisions) Bill. Taken together, the recommendations contained in both reports seek to establish a system whereby inchoate and secondary liability will support and supplement each other in a way that is rational and fair.
