Practice and Procedure

R v (1) I (2) R (3) T (2012)

PUBLISHED June 21, 2012

[2012] EWCA Crim 1288

A judge had erred in refusing to admit expert evidence of counter immuno electrophoresis testing in the prosecution of the respondent fertiliser manufacturer for failing to heat animal blood sufficiently. The expert's failure to provide evidence explaining a negative bacterial count went to weight not to admissibility.
