[2011] EWCA Crim 8

The case of Secretary of State for the Home Department v F [2009] UKHL 28, [2010] 2 A.C. 269 was not directed to, nor was it intended to impact on, pre-trial criminal processes concerned with the mode of trial, otherwise a defendant would continue to be entitled to trial by jury even where the court was satisfied that there was a real and present and unavoidable danger of jury tampering. The principles identified in R. v H [2004] UKHL 3, [2004] 2 A.C. 134 continued to apply where a defendant attempted to influence a jury's verdict.

CA (Crim Div) (Lord Judge LCJ, Rafferty J, Roderick Evans J)
