Kangs Solicitors has successfully defended a client charged with an offence of Conspiracy to Defraud.
Nazaqat Maqsoom of Kangs Solicitors explains the circumstances.
The Circumstances | Kangs Financial Offences Defence Solicitors
Our client was charged, along with six others, with conspiracy to defraud insurance companies by fabricating the circumstances of a road traffic accident.
- relied on expert evidence to the effect that the damage claimed to have resulted was inconsistent with the nature of the collision
- alleged that the circumstances of the accident did not take place as described
- relied on evidential inconsistencies and the fact that the drivers of both vehicles knew each other but had failed to disclose this to the insurance companies.
How We Assisted Our Client | Kangs Criminal Trial Preparation Team
In preparation for trial, the Kangs Team was engaged as follows:
- All of the material served by the Prosecution was thoroughly examined.
- Detailed instructions were taken from our client.
- Specific disclosure requests were served on the Prosecution.
- Appropriate experienced Counsel was identified and instructed.
The Trial | Successful Outcome | Kangs Criminal Trial Solicitors
- Following the commencement of the trial, detailed legal argument was discussed before the Trial Judge maintaining that the Expert evidence which the Prosecution wished to rely on and put to the jury for consideration should not be allowed and should be excluded.
- Having considered the legal arguments,
the Trial Judge agreed and directed that the Expert evidence should be excluded
from the trial.
- Following this successful application, the Prosecution decided there was no reasonable prospect of success at a trial and therefore offered no evidence to the court with the result the trial could no longer proceed.
- Accordingly, ‘not guilty’ verdicts were returned for all defendants.
Naturally, our client was very happy with the successful achievement secured on his behalf.
