R v PEDRO VASCO (2012)

PUBLISHED October 25, 2012

[2012] EWCA Crim 3004

In a case which turned on the correctness of a visual identification, the judge had erred in failing to give the jury a proper warning about the general dangers of identification evidence and in failing to undertake a specific analysis of the potential weaknesses in the case.
