Practice and Procedure

R v KIFFIN (2005)

PUBLISHED April 26, 2005

It had been open to a judge to permit the prosecution to cross-examine a defence witness on whether or not she had been anxious as to a defendant's state of mind and actions and to recall a witness to provide hearsay evidence in rebuttal as the issue had been raised by the defence and the evidence of the defence witness was inconsistent with what she had said on another occasion.
