McInnes v HM Advocate

Supreme Court

“When considering whether a criminal conviction in Scotland should be overturned because of a failure by the Crown to disclose witness statements to the defence, the question for the High Court of Justiciary to consider was whether, taking all the circumstances of the trial into account, there was a real possibility that the jury would have arrived at a different verdict if the material had been available.”
