R (on the application of GWILLIAM) v DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC PROSECUTIONS (2010)

PUBLISHED October 6, 2010

[2010] EWHC 3312 (Admin)

A magistrates' court had erred in making a finding of fact that the vegetable matter found on the appellant was cannabis, given that the arresting police officer had conceded in cross-examination that it possibly might not have been cannabis, and in the absence of any other evidence that the substance was cannabis.
