Regina v Greene (Jeremy Herbert)

Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)

“Where a judge ruled that a witness could be treated as hostile at trial within the meaning of section 3 of the Criminal Procedure Act 1865, by the party calling him but that witness did not in the event prove to be hostile, the judge still had to warn the jury to approach that witness’s evidence with caution, and the nature of that direction depended on the particular circumstances of the case.”
