[2006] EWCA Crim 617

Where the prosecution relied on memorandums of convictions to show that a defendant had previous convictions, it was not a matter of law as to what was capable of giving rise to prima facie evidence that the convictions related to that defendant, it was dependent on the circumstances in each case. Where the judge decided that the memorandums of convictions provided prima facie proof that the defendant was the person referred to in them, the ultimate decision as to whether it was conclusive proof was a matter of fact for the jury.
