Regina v Sekadde: CACD 16 Dec 1997

The defendant appealed a conviction for supply of heroin. Among the grounds of appeal was the suggestion that the act that she had been requested to translate a document in her own language for the court create a false association with that document.
Held: The judge had sufficiently warned the jury not to make the association. Appeal dismissed.
