R v Ukpabio

There is no power outside the statutory provisions of the Youth Justice and Criminal Evidence Act 1999 to direct that a defendant can give evidence at his trial by live video link; however, in exceptional circumstances where it is appropriate for the defendant not to be present in court, there is power to direct that he can participate in his trial by other means such as live video link.
