Haq, Regina v: CACD 22 Oct 2014

Whether a witness statement, apparently signed by the appellant, which actually had the effect of undermining his alibi should have been excluded pursuant to section 78 of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984, by reason of the manner by which it was obtained and/or its adverse effect upon the fairness of the proceedings. If so, is the conviction unsafe?
