The defendants' appeals against conviction for conspiracy to supply and possession of heroin were allowed because the judge had prevented their defence from being put to the jury by: (i) imposing a blanket prohibition on questions about matters which occured before a certain date on public interest immunity grounds; and (ii) failing to sum up their defence of duress properly.
