Green and D'Ambrosio v HM Advocate

Criminal evidence and procedure – Judge's charge – Accuracy of narration of evidence and balance of charge – Sufficiency of evidence. High Court of Justiciary: Refusing appeals by two appellants who were convicted of a charge libelling assault, robbery, abduction and attempted extortion, the court held that there was no partiality in the trial judge's charge, nor any error of fact of material importance, and there was a compelling circumstantial case against the second appellant, which the jury would have been entitled to accept.
