R v DEAN PINNOCK & 8 ORS (2006)

PUBLISHED December 20, 2006
SHARE

[2006] EWCA Crim 3119

Applications for leave to appeal against convictions for murder based on fresh evidence sought to be led by one of the applicants, wherein he gave a new version of events leading to the killing, were refused since the fresh evidence was incapable of belief. Circumstantial evidence was capable of providing, and often did provide, a very strong case against an accused and was not to be considered as an indicator of weakness of the prosecution case.
