Unlawful assembly - One step down from Riot

 

An unlawful assembly is . . .  

 

“. . . an assembly of three or more persons who, with intent to carry out a common purpose, assemble in such a manner, or so conduct themselves when assembled as to cause persons in the neighbourhood to fear, on reasonable grounds, (that violence against person or property) will occur”. 

 

The accompanying definitions make the onus of proof difficult and the maximum penalty is only one year’s imprisonment.

We provide you with a direct link to the Crimes Act 1961 . . . .

Feedback/Blogs/Reviews from related topic: Crimes - Time Limits???
"I also found the topic on the Limitation Act 1950 helpful because it dealt with time limits for civil cases . . . 2 years for defamation (without getting leave), 6 years for contracts etc. Good to get it all on one site. I thought I had a good case for defamation but I really left it too late. Des N - Tauranga"
