R v NGYUEN (2008)

PUBLISHED March 18, 2008

[2008] EWCA Crim 585

In a trial for murder, there had been no unfairness to a defendant where a judge ruled as admissible, under the Criminal Justice Act 2003 s.101(1)(d), evidence of assaults the Crown had chosen not to prosecute but had chosen to rely on as evidence that the defendant had a propensity to commit offences of the kind with which he was charged.
