R v SALIM AHMED (2008)

PUBLISHED February 26, 2008

[2008] EWCA Crim 472

If a Watson direction needed to be given, the judge should adhere to the recognised form, but in the instant case the judge had not intended to give a Watson direction and what was said did not put the jury under pressure to reach a verdict.
