Michel v The Queen – WLR Daily

Michel v The Queen [2009] UKPC 40; [2009] WLR (D) 312

“A defendant’s right to a fair trial was absolute and he was entitled to explain his case, however improbable, without constantly being subjected to the judge’s sarcasm and hostility. When the impropriety of a judge’s interventions and interruptions in a trial were so extreme as to render the trial unfair, an appeal court had no alternative but to set the conviction aside even when the evidence against the defendant was overwhelming.”

WLR Daily, 4th November 2009
