[2008] UKHL 8

The requirement that a bill of indictment be signed by a proper officer of the court was not merely a technicality, and where a trial had taken place without satisfying that requirement it was a nullity and the ensuing convictions were quashed.

HL (Lord Bingham of Cornhill, Lord Scott of Foscote, Lord Rodger of Earlsferry, Lord Carswell, Lord Brown of Eaton-under-Heywood)
