R v (1) M (2) H (3) C (2007)

PUBLISHED June 13, 2007

[2007] EWCA Crim 1581

Where a case concerning allegations of rape and of aiding and abetting rape turned entirely on the credibility of the complainant as against the appellants, and evidence which went to that issue had been excluded, even though that had been done with the agreement of defence counsel, the convictions were quashed.
