Supply of drugs and toxic substances to vulnerable persons – new case direction in Rebelo

May 14, 2021

In this case note, Richard Barraclough QC outlines the new case direction that has been made available as a result of the latest appeal in the case of Rebelo.

It has taken a number of years to have a direction which can now be used adapted as necessary to accommodate the facts of a particular case. This direction can now be used where drugs or other substances are supplied to a person who is later demonstrated to lack capacity or be otherwise vulnerable.
