[2004] EWCA Crim 2848

Despite fresh material that had come to light, subsequent to the appellant's plea of guilty to manslaughter, that the primary prosecution witness was facing possible charges for providing false information in an unrelated incident, the judge had been entitled to refuse the appellant's application to vacate his guilty plea on the basis that it was a public and voluntary acceptance by him that he had taken part in an unlawful attack.
