Regina v Makanjuola and Regina v E (1995)

These two cases relate to the convictions of defendants for sexual offences on uncorroborated testimony, yet another perversion of the rule of law.

Although unrelated, they were heard by the Court of Appeal together, R v Easton is alluded to simply as R v E.

There is a spelling mistake in the judgment at the top of page 1349 - the hearsay rule is alluded to as the hearsay role. At page 1352 there is a truly bizarre quote:

Attempts to re-impose the straitjacket of the old corroboration rules are to be strongly deprecated.

Indeed!
