URGENT NOTICE re: Issue 30 of our Criminal Appeals Bulletin

Further to the Criminal Appeals Bulletin sent to you on 9th May 2019, it has been brought to our attention that one of the judgments referred to in the  Bulletin, R v Hajdarmat [2019] EWCA Crim 303 (see the article headed ‘Previous acquittals – what should the jury know?’), is presently subject to a reporting restriction and should not have been referred to in the Bulletin. The article has been removed from the online version of the Bulletin.


As a recipient of the Bulletin you are in possession of the original version. We would be very grateful if you would take the following steps

  1. Do not further circulate the initial mailing of Issue 30 of the Bulletin.
  2. Delete the Bulletin immediately (you may access the edited version from the DSC website here)
  3. If you have already forwarded the Bulletin to another other person(s), we would be grateful if you would request they also do not circulate and that it be deleted it by them.


We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding and co-operation.


With best wishes,


Doughty Street Chambers
