R v ASHLEY KANG (2013)

PUBLISHED September 24, 2013

[2013] EWCA Crim 1609

Although part of prosecuting counsel's cross-examination of a rape defendant, related to bad character and based on inadmissible hearsay evidence, had been misjudged and regrettable, it had not affected the overall fairness of the proceedings or the safety of the verdict.
