A trial collapsed when a Muslim swore an oath on the Bible instead of the Koran.
Michael Davies was accused of attempted robbery until it emerged a witness had taken the oath on the wrong book.
The judge, Recorder Patrick Thompson, said the trial at Liverpool Crown Court could not proceed, adding: ‘It is probably best if a fresh jury who doesn’t think we’re all totally incompetent hears this case.’
Probably a good thing. h/t ZD
