Criminal evidence and procedure - Appeal - Unsafe conviction - Evidence of complainant - Failure to direct jury.
Where a defendant was convicted of inflicting grievous bodily harm, the judge had not erred in his direction to the jury in relation to the inconsistencies in the complainant's evidence.
