Regina v C(S) [2012] EWCA Crim 6; [2012] WLR (D) 5

“At a retrial of a conspirator about whom the jury at the first trial had been unable to reach a verdict, the Crown would be entitled to tell the jury that it was the prosecution’s case that those who had been acquitted at the first trial were probably involved in the conspiracy and that the jury would be entitled to take into account the acquitted conspirators’ probable role in the importation when deciding whether they were sure that the defendant had conspired with a conspirator who had pleaded guilty.”
