Criminal evidence - Identity - Visual identification - Possibility of mistaken identification - Inflicting grievous bodily harm - Prosecution relying on CCTV evidence and identification parade - Whether judge erring in concluding that case for defendant to answer - Whether conviction unsafe.
Criminal evidence Identity. Where the defendant had been convicted of inflicting grievous bodily harm, the conviction could not stand and had to be quashed. The evidence of identification and the other evidence adduced by the prosecution had not been sufficient to survive the half-time submissions advanced by the defendant.
