[2001] UKHL 40

In establishing an offence under s.170(2) Customs and Excise Management Act 1979 it was sufficient for the Crown to prove that the offender knew he was involved in the evasion of a prohibition on the importation of goods. It was not necessary to prove that the offender knew the identity of the goods that were the subject of the prohibition.

HL (Lord Slynn of Hadley, Lord Steyn, Lord Hope of Craighead, Lord Clyde, Lord Hutton)
