Criminal evidence - Hearsay - Evidence at earlier hearing - Possessing prohibited firearm - Evidence ruled inadmissible at public interest immunity hearing being adduced in cross examination - Evidence tending to support co-defendant's case - Whether defendant' s case prejudiced - Whether conviction unsafe.
Criminal evidence - Hearsay. The appeal against conviction would be allowed. In the instant case, the conviction had been rendered unsafe by reason of the material which had been wrongly admitted in cross-examination, and which had been previously ruled inadmissible at a public interest immunity hearing. The defendant's trial had been unfair. The conviction would be quashed.
