AHMED v CROWN PROSECUTION SERVICE (2017)

4 May 2017

QBD (Admin) (Sir Wyn Williams)

A police officer who genuinely and reasonably believed that she was authorised by court order to arrest an individual for breaching an injunction, and who genuinely and reasonably believed that the individual was in breach of the injunction, was acting in the execution of her duty. Therefore, although the injunction and power of arrest had erroneously cited repealed statutory provisions, when the individual assaulted her he could be convicted of assaulting an officer in the execution of her duty.
