Practice and Procedure

R v MK (2007)

PUBLISHED December 4, 2007

[2007] EWCA Crim 3150

Evidence of a telephone call, in which a drug dealer asked the person he was talking to about the availability and price of certain drugs, contained no representation of fact or opinion but was an implied assertion that that person was his supplier. Accordingly it was not hearsay and was admissible without having to comply with the hearsay provisions in the Criminal Justice Act 2003.
