Ashmans secure Not Guilty verdict on Murder Charge.
Our client was one of three men charged with a conspiracy to murder allegation. The victim died following a stabbing incident. Following an extensive investigation, our client, along with two co-defendants were charged with the murder offence.
This was a particularly complex case as identification and presence at the scene were not in dispute. It was also apparent that the fatal blow (which caused the death) could only have been inflicted by one of the three defendants. Nevertheless, our client vehemently denied being guilty of murder. We fought tirelessly to explore all potential avenues to support our client’s defence. The extensive enquires and work included, but was not limited to, spending multiple hours attending upon our client to obtain his detailed instructions, trawling through many hours of various CCTV footage, exploring any historical disputes and differences between our client and the deceased etc. We utilised all the preparatory work to advance a robust defence against the murder charge.
At the conclusion of the trial, the jury unanimously acquitted our client of the murder charge.
The Defendant, along with 4 others, was charged with entering into an arrangement to launder the proceeds of crime totalling in excess of £1 million. This was a large scale money laundering operation and very sophisticated in its nature. The Defendant was alleged to have masterminded the operation. A number of international companies were defrauded by having their accounting practices high jacked and proceeds of their sales were diverted into other companies or persons’ names. These monies were then dissipated involving layering of bank accounts and then withdrawals in large denominations of cash. The case was highly complex and voluminous in its nature. It was prosecuted by the Economic Crime Unit.
Ashmans Solicitors successfully secure acquittal in a high profile fraud case. The Defendant was charged with conspiracy to defraud Barclays Private Client International Bank by obtaining mortgage loans to which the Crown allege they were not entitled to. This was a historical high-value mortgage fraud dating back to January 2006. The approximate value of the fraud which the Crown alleged was approximately £40 million dealing with a number of high-value properties. Our mortgage fraud solicitors investigated these allegations tirelessly.
The Defendant was one of 12 individuals charged with the said offence. The Prosecution case was that the mortgages applied for were obtained by providing false information to the Bank which the Defendants knew to be false. This was a highly organised conspiracy in which each Defendant is alleged to have played their part. It involved purchases using an off-shore company registered in the Isle of Man or the British Virgin Islands as the purchasing entity. The punishment for Mortgage fraud.
The Defendants involved in the case were predominantly professionals who were either introducer/agents in the property business, property dealers, chartered surveyors, mortgage brokers, bank manager and two solicitors. Following a three month trial our client was acquitted unanimously by the Jury. The case was voluminous in its nature involving in excess of 20,000 pages of served material. This case involved issues with handwriting evidence, professional property and professional ethics experts.
