ADDING COUNTS TO THE INDICTMENT

Where on the evidence a conviction was possible under either s.5(1) or s.5(2) Forgery and Counterfeiting Act 1981, the best course was the charging of the two offences in separate counts, but there had been no unfairness to a defendant by the late introduction of a s.5(2) offence at trial.
