Practice and Procedure

R v L : R v R : R v S : R v E (2012)

PUBLISHED October 30, 2012

[2012] EWCA Crim 2611

A judge had been entitled to make a terminating ruling that excluded a video identification procedure from a murder trial where the images used of suspects who were identical twins had differed significantly and had rendered the procedure fatally flawed. He had properly taken account of the PACE codes of practice Code D3 and exercised his discretion on the particular facts of the case.
