[2009] EWCA Crim 1617

A trial judge's remarks made when sentencing, at an earlier date, a prosecution witness and then repeated without advance warning during the cross-examination of that witness during the trial at issue had not prejudiced the fairness of the trial as the remarks could not have been seen as endorsing or commenting upon every detailed part of the evidence which the prosecution witness gave at trial.
