R v PAUL MARSH (2008)

PUBLISHED July 25, 2008

[2008] EWCA Crim 1816

Where there was difficulty in assessing the value of a hearsay statement, the maker of which was available to be seen by the jury, there had to be pause before admitting the statement as evidence because of the possibility that the maker of the statement would rely on the privilege against self-incrimination.
