(1) If evidence is given of conduct but the prosecution does not rely on the evidence as evidence of incriminating conduct, defence counsel may request under section 12 that the trial judge—
(a) direct the jury that there are all sorts of reasons why a person might behave in a way that makes the person look guilty; and
(b) warn the jury that even if the jury thinks that the accused engaged in the conduct, it must not conclude from that evidence that the accused is guilty of the offence charged.
Section 14 requires the trial judge to give this direction, if requested, unless there are good reasons for not doing so. Section 16 requires the trial judge to give a direction if the trial judge considers that there are substantial and compelling reasons for doing so.
(2) Without limiting section 14, it is a good reason for not giving the requested direction if the trial judge considers that there is no substantial risk that the jury might use the evidence as evidence of incriminating conduct.
