Practice and Procedure

R v (1) PS (2) CS (2007)

PUBLISHED July 12, 2007

[2007] EWCA Crim 2058

A judge had erred in ruling that there was no case to answer where the issue before the court was an issue of fact for the jury. The Crown's decision not to call a particular witness had not been fatal to its case since an operative deception to obtain a money transfer could be proved by inference.
