Criminal evidence and procedure - Trial - Submission of no case to answer - Judge leaving case to jury - Correctness of decision.
In the circumstances of the instant case, there had, on the evidence at the close of the Crown's case, been ample circumstantial evidence upon which the jury might have been sure of the defendant's guilt. Therefore, the recorder had not erred in refusing a submission of no case to answer. Further, there was no doubt as to the safety of the defendant's conviction.
