Practice and Procedure

R v RIPON MIAH (2013)

PUBLISHED November 22, 2013

[2013] EWCA Crim 2327

A conviction for possession of a Class A drug with intent to supply was safe despite the offender's complaint that his counsel should have called the solicitor who advised him at the police station to remain silent. The solicitor's advice had been entirely sensible and calling him to give evidence would have been fraught with risk.
