Regina v Ideal Waste Paper Co Ltd and others: [2011] WLR (D)  370

“The absence of guidance relating to the permissible levels of contamination of waste which could legally be exported did not render criminal proceedings an abuse of process on grounds that the charges were so imprecise as to offend the requirements of the common law and of article 7 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms concerning accessibility and certainty of criminal offences.”
