Admissibility of document by one conspirator against others
R v Devonport (1996).
CA (Beldam LJ, Judge J and Allen J)
Summary: Admitting a document prepared by one of the defendants charged with conspiracy to defraud as evidence against the others.
Appeal by defendants who, with three others, had conspired to steal money from bank accounts and were charged with conspiracy to defraud. The principal ground of appeal concerned a document that was prepared by one of the defendants other than the appellants and which referred to the appellants and showed the intended division of spoils from the conspiracy. It had not been alleged that the appellants prepared the document or were party to its preparation and no link between the appellants and the document had been established.
