Thus, for example, although these are not expressly mentioned by Article 6, aspects of a fair criminal trial include the right of silence and the right not to incriminate oneself (Saunders v. UK), and the right of the defence in criminal proceedings to have disclosure of material in the hands of the prosecution (Edwards and Lewis v. UK). In determining whether a trial was fair within the meaning of Article 6, it is necessary to consider the issue of ‘equality of arms’.

For example, the snail case concerned goods to be consumed internally, whereas the underpants case concerned goods to be worn externally.
