[2012] EWCA Crim 549

The overall responsibility of the trial judge for the fairness of a trial had not been altered because of the increased availability of intermediaries, or indeed the wide band of possible special measures now enshrined in statute. The conviction for rape of the appellant, who had complex psychiatric difficulties, had not been rendered unsafe by the fact that an intermediary could not be found to assist him.

CA (Crim Div) (Lord Judge, Macur J, Saunders J)
