R v GAC (2013)

PUBLISHED July 24, 2013

[2013] EWCA Crim 1472

An offender appealing against a conviction for importation of drugs could not raise the defence of duress as a result of battered woman syndrome, on appeal, as she was not credible and where in any event the correct time to raise that defence would have been at trial.
