Snowden and Jennings v HM Advocate

Criminal evidence and procedure – Judge's charge – Admissibility/sufficiency of evidence. High Court of Justiciary: Refusing appeals by two appellants who were convicted of numerous charges, including wiful fire raising and murder, the court rejected a ground of appeal in respect of both appellants which alleged that the judger's charge to the jury lacked balance, and also rejected grounds in respect of one appellant based on sufficiency of evidence, the admissibility of expert evidence on eye witness identification and the admissibility of statements made by an accused outwith the presence of his co-accused.
