Malawi judgment in full

You can read the full judgment in the sad case of Steven and Tiwonge’s at this link. When you read the PDF file, it is a reminder of the lasting impact of English law - the citations will be familiar to law students. I was slightly horrified to see an old out of date law dictionary cited at one point as an authority. Much of the document reads like a very poor student essay and yet unlike a poor essay it's had a profound impact on two lives immediately and will no doubt have cast a fearful shadow over many more citizens of Malawi.

Read the judgment here.
