*R v Singh-Mann and others

Criminal law – Trial. The defendants appealed against their convictions for conspiracy to defraud on the ground that the judge had not properly summed up their cases. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, in dismissing the appeal, held that, although the defence submissions had not been summarised by the judge, the jury would have clearly appreciated the arguments and the issues. In consequence, the verdicts were not vitiated because of that notable deficiency in the summing up.
