R v G (G) & B (S) (2009)

PUBLISHED June 12, 2009

[2009] EWCA Crim 1207

The evidence of a co-accused, who following his conviction made a statement for the police against his acquitted co-defendants for the purposes of reducing his sentence, was in no sense the kind of compelling new material that could justify the reversal of an acquittal.
