Criminal law - Appeal - Appeal against conviction - Whether conviction for conspiracy to rob unsafe.

The case against them might have been circumstantial, but that was not necessarily a weakness, and the reality was that there were a number of strands of evidence which, taken together, gave rise to a powerful case against each of them.
