This article reviews the issues arising front the placing of burdens of proof on the defendant, particularly the issue of their compatibility with the presumption of innocence in the European Convention on Human Rights. The review finds the application of the criteria of compatibility to be uncertain and inconsistent. It is argued that general principles are needed to structure and guide decision-making. A number of principles are identified and discussed.
