The conviction was based on testimony given by the complainant and witness being "credible" as the magistrate described.
The evidence which was ignored was a transcript of a 999 call made. In the transcript it stated that the complainant said that the relative had approached her in a car, opened the window and verbally abused her. Yet, when giving evidence at the trial she said that she was verbally abused from an upstairs window as she walked past our house. When our defence solicitor questioned her about this, she said that what was written in the 999 transcript was not true.
