Where a complainant had made an allegation of assault occasioning actual bodily harm against defendants who argued self defence and had not disclosed that he himself had a pending hearing for a public order offence, such a factor was unlikely to undermine a conviction. At its highest, the offence was pending and what the jury had to consider was when, and in what circumstances, the aggression in the instant case arose.
