Her Majesty the Queen v. Gordon Reynolds – April 19, 2011
Gordon Reynolds was convicted of attempting to obstruct the course of justice and of breach of recognizance. The trial judge found that Reynolds had tried to persuade a witness not to give evidence in a criminal proceeding “by corrupt means”. The respondent suggested that the witness could get a false doctor’s note stating that he was incapable of testifying.
Reynolds challenged the trial judge’s interpretation of “corrupt means”.
