[2011] UKPC 18

The judge's repeated references, when summing up in a murder trial, to his ruling on a voir dire, to the effect that the defendant had signed a confession voluntarily, amounted to a material irregularity given that the defendant had alleged that the confession had been obtained as a result of police violence.

PC (Trin) (Lord Phillips JSC, Lord Mance JSC, Lord Clarke JSC, Lord Hamilton, Sir Henry Brooke)
