Practice and Procedure

R v JD (2012)

PUBLISHED August 3, 2012

[2012] EWCA Crim 2637

A judge who had determined that a police officer's identification of an offender from CCTV footage had been a "flagrant" and "lamentable" breach of the Code of Practice for the Identification of Persons by Police Officers (Code D) had erred in finding that it was difficult for the police to comply with the Code, and had been wrong not to declare the evidence inadmissible.
