Criminal evidence – Admissibility of evidence. High Court of Justiciary: Refusing an appeal by an appellant who was convicted of a charge of rape, the court held that the trial judge had not erred in the exercise of her discretion in refusing counsel leave to argue, though late, a minute objecting to the admissibility of a statement the appellant had given to the police, and moreover, the statement was not inadmissible and there was nothing that would justify a finding that the police interview was unfair.
