Regina v Al-Ali; [2008] WLR (D) 302

“When granting leave to a prosecutor to appeal from a ruling of a trial judge in the Crown Court, the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division) should look rather more widely at the interests of justice than simply considering whether the appeal had a realistic prospect of success because even if the judge’s ruling were held to be wrong it would only be if it were in the interests of justice that an order should be made to resume the trial or to start a fresh trial.”
