HARRISON v. REGINAM (Cr. App. No. 52/66) [1967] SLCA 1234 (02 May 1967);

Search Summary: 

Criminal Procedure-appeals-appeals against conviction-judge's summing-up not recorded-fatal where misdirection possible and same verdict uncertain on proper direction:

Headnote and Holding: 

Failure to record the judge's summing-up in a jury trial will not necessarily prove fatal, but where the appellate court cannot be sure that the jury have been properly directed and that, if properly directed, they would have brought in the same verdict, the conviction will be quashed (page 122, lines 26--31; page 123, lines 27-30, 34-39).
