"Not Guilty" v "Not Proven."
As an infrequent visitor to this forum I apologise if this topic has recently been aired.
A very recent murder trial (in England) resulted in a “Not Guilty” verdict. Should compelling evidence emerge at a later date the double jeopardy law precludes retrial of the accused.
Is it not time English law permitted the “Not Proven” option available to Scottish juries? I’m assuming that a “Not Proven” verdict would allow a further trial if important evidence later came to light.
