Following the submission of detailed representations to the Independent Monitor, the Metropolitan Police have been directed to remove the information they had disclosed on our client’s Enhanced DBS Certificate.

Background | Kangs Criminal Team

The unacceptable information was the allegation that our client had attempted to administer a substance into the drink of a female with the intention to stupify or overpower her for the purpose of sexual activity.

The Police had disclosed the details of this allegation on the Enhanced DBS Certificate notwithstanding that our client was never charged.

Our client is currently employed by a leading University and submitting his Enhanced DBS Certificate, in its current form, given the nature of the information the Metropolitan Police had disclosed, would, almost certainly, have had a detrimental impact on his continuing employment with the University.

Route to Success | Kangs Pro-active Criminal Team

As the Metropolitan Police had refused our client’s appeal, he instructed Kangs Solicitors to challenge the decision with the Independent Monitor.

Once detailed instructions had been taken from our client, Kangs Solicitors prepared detailed and extensive submissions challenging all aspects of the Disclosure Notice. This involved the application of a number of leading authorities in this niche area of law.

This successful appeal concludes a long and difficult period for our client who is now looking forward to continuing his career at the University.

What The Client Had To Say:

‘Mr Micklewright acted for me re a DBS complaint. He kept in contact with me throughout and achieved what we set out to do…money well spent…Experienced in DBS work…I would highly recommend him for his excellent work’
