[2013] EWCA Crim 775

Any practice of not disclosing the details of alibi witnesses to the prosecution until they had provided signed proofs of evidence was wrong and breached the requirements of the Criminal Procedure and Investigations Act 1996 s.6A(2)(a). However, the view that details should not be disclosed had been widely held; a firm of solicitors' failure to disclose had not been improper or unreasonable so as to justify a wasted costs order against them.
