[2012] EWCA Crim 1380

A valid waiver of the right to legal representation at a police interview had to be voluntary, informed and unequivocal. In assessing the validity of a waiver, the court had to consider the extent of the suspect's knowledge and the extent to which his decision had caused him disadvantage.
