Criminal evidence - Child - Application for evidence to be given by live television link - Child victim robbed by defendant - Defendant 13 years old - Justices permitting cross examination via television link - Whether decision irrational - s 32.
In all the circumstances, it could not be said that there was no material from which it could be inferred that the 13-year-old victim of a robbery would feel intimidated should he give evidence at the trial of his alleged assailant, notwithstanding that the victim had said in a witness statement that he would give evidence at the trial. Accordingly, the decision of a youth court to allow the victim to give evidence via a video link under s32 of the would stand.
