[2013] EWCA Crim 1053

A conviction for wounding with intent was quashed as unsafe where the trial judge had admitted a witness statement, having been satisfied that the witness was in genuine fear of giving evidence, but where the statement was inherently unreliable in ways that a jury direction could not possibly have redressed.

CA (Crim Div) (Sir John Thomas (President QBD) , Openshaw J, Stewart J)
