ABSENCE OF RISK OF PROHIBITED REASONING

Convictions for two counts of being knowingly concerned in fraudulently evading duty on tobacco was safe as the judge had correctly ruled that diary entries relating to other instances of importation of tobacco were admissible to rebut the assertion of ignorance and innocence in relation to the unlawful activities in question, and there was no risk that the jury members might have allowed themselves to indulge in prohibited reasoning.
