APPEAL: where appellant charged with dishonestly causing a financial detriment; where prosecution particularised as her dishonesty alleged untruthful statements made to a witness; where the defence version was not put to the witness, but where the appellant had given that version to police soon after the event, whether his Honour impermissibly used the “rule” in Brown v Dunne in decisive findings as to credit, whether on a proper construction of a Local Law, the appellant had acted lawfully; whether his Honour had reversed the onus of proof.
