R v ALTIN MULA (2013)

PUBLISHED June 27, 2013

[2013] EWCA Crim 1293

The conviction of an offender for grievous bodily harm was not safe, as although he claimed not to have been at the scene and had relied on the defence of alibi there was evidence from which a jury could infer that if he was at the scene he had acted in self-defence, and the judge had wrongly refused to put that to the jury.
