After complex legal arguments in relation to disclosure and an adjournment for the Judge to consider the impact of R v Boardman  EWCA Crim 175 and R v Salt  EWCA Crim 662, the Judge ruled that all material served after a particular date was to be excluded from evidence. The Crown’s conduct was particularly disappointing given the case concerned a youth defendant who had been found to be a victim of modern slavery. On 13 July 2021, the Crown reconsidered the case in light of the ruling and offered no evidence against our client.
