Stop Press - Contradiction between civil and criminal law on permitting minors evidence

One day court hearing before three Lord Justices on May 20th 2009 concerning false allegations of sexual abuse in case of W (child) on the issues of child not giving evidence in Public law proceedings raises further confusion when at later date W (child) was required under to give evidence in criminal proceeding. Her evidence contradicted the ABE interview for the Police. This raises a very important point of law : Was the Judge plainly wrong in handing down Judgement on October 24th 2008 knowing that the criminal proceeding was pending and that W (child) would be expected to give evidence in a criminal hearing?
