R v Kwaik

Criminal Evidence – Expert evidence. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, in dismissing the defendant's appeal against conviction for one count of manslaughter and two counts of unlawful wounding, held that the challenge to the admissibility of the prosecution expert's evidence had to fail. Further, the fresh evidence tendered was simply not clear or firm enough to afford a ground for allowing the appeal and it would not be received by the court.
