    DNP Death | Client Not Guilty | Kangs Serious Crime Defence Solicitors

    As reported in her article posted to this site on May 16th 2018, Frances Murray of Kangs Solicitors has been defending a client charged, alongside others, with supplying DNP for human consumption, which the Prosecution claims resulted in a person’s death.

    Frances Murray now reports the successful outcome achieved for our client.

    The Allegations | Kangs Regulatory Defence Team

    The Prosecution alleged that our client operated a number of companies, set up with others, for the sale and supply of DNP in capsule form as a weight loss supplement for human consumption.

    Our client was charged with placing unsafe food on the market, a regulatory offence which is contrary to Article 14 of Regulation (EC) 178/2002 and Regulation 19 of the Food Safety and Hygiene (England) Regulations 2013.

    The Prosecution alleged that the sale led to the death of an individual and our client was charged with both unlawful act manslaughter and gross negligence manslaughter, both of which charges were strongly denied. The Prosecution also alleged that our client had laundered the proceeds of crime.

    How We Assisted Our Client | Kangs Serious Crime Trial Preparation Team

    Trial preparation included:

    • regularly attending our client taking detailed instructions
    • examining and considering all aspect of the relevant law
    • extensive scrutiny of the voluminous evidence served by the Prosecution including evidence of medical professionals and the forensic analysis of electronic evidence
    • identifying and instructing in detail experienced Queens Counsel and junior counsel to present our client’s defence at court
    • attending client in conferences with counsel.

    At the Trial:

    • following the Prosecution’s presentation of its case, it was apparent to us that there was no evidence sufficient to support the conviction of our client.
    • accordingly, it was submitted to the Judge that there was ‘no case to answer’ on the basis there was insufficient evidence for a jury to properly convict.
    • the Judge agreed with the submission put forward and directed the jury to acquit our client of both charges.
    • the Prosecution proceeded against our client in respect of the money laundering allegation
    • following expert cross examination of the Prosecution witnesses and forensic analysis of our client’s bank accounts the jury unanimously returned a not guilty verdict

    Naturally, our client was ecstatic at the result and extremely grateful for the hard work involved in the preparation of the successful defence.

    Our client commented as follows:

    “I’m extremely grateful to Kangs for their hard work and dedication to my case. Their expert knowledge of such cases contributed hugely to my acquittal of all charges.  In particular, I would like to thank Frances Murray of Kangs Solicitors for all her efforts and her continued support throughout the criminal proceedings”.
