[2002] EWCA Crim 1320

Evidence relating to a specific unrelated allegation that was proposed to be used to undermine the credibility of a witness was not evidence that the witness had a general reputation for untruthfulness. It was therefore not an exemption to the rule of the finality requirement of questions put on issues of credibility and collateral matters. Consequently, it was inadmissible evidence.
