Selection of recent trials:
R v LK & others (Money Laundering, Portsmouth Crown Court, 2018)
After extensive legal argument and numerous disclosure requests, the crown offered no evidence against Nadeem’s client on day 24 of this multi defendant trial. The case against Nadeem’s client involved detailed analysis of account ledgers, transaction reports and tax returns. Expert forensic accountants were instructed by both the prosecution and the defence.
R v RB & others (Money Laundering, Isleworth Crown Court, 2018):
This trial involved consideration of the statutory defence at s.329(2)(c) POCA 2002. Legal argument centred upon the proper interpretation of Hogan v DPP. The central issue was whether a defendant is not guilty if he or she gives proper consideration for property which he or she knows to be the proceeds of crime.
R v JB & another (Firearms, Kingston Crown Court, 2018):
An alleged conspiracy to possess a sub machine gun and ammunition with intent to endanger life. The trial came to a conclusion at the close of the prosecution case following the submission of Nadeem’s skeleton argument on the circumstances from which an intent to endanger life can be inferred. Submissions were focused upon the cases of R v Bentham and R v Jones (Ivor) & another.
R v JSB & others (Drugs supply, Kingston Crown Court, 2018):
An alleged conspiracy to supply £300,000 worth of class A drugs. This was a 12,000 page case involving mobile phone analysis, cell site analysis and consideration of covert surveillance material.
R v SS (Historic sexual abuse, Guildford Crown Court, 2018):
This case involved issues of Doli Incapax (the law on the age of criminal responsibility prior to 1998) and the proper application of the law as it was before the enacting of the Sexual Offences Act 2003.
R v JM (Rape, Leicester Crown Court, 2018):
A trial involving issues of consent and capacity to consent.
