This permission to appeal case dealt with the interesting issue of what to do with the evidence of acquittals before a previous jury.
Clearly a Defendant cannot be re-tried for the original offences and it remains perfectly permissible to use the evidence relating to those allegations to support the new prosecution by way of Bad Character Evidence, it was always such even under the Common Law Similar Fact principles.
The Court applied R v Hajdarmataj  EWCA Crim 303 and agreed with the Judges ruling that the evidence was admissible, as it was important explanatory evidence pursuant to101(1)(c) of the 2003 Act.
Defence Counsel could cross examine about any inconsistencies but not the fact of the acquittal themselves. As such the transcripts should be made available to aid that cross examination.
