  • R v Chahal

    This defendant was charged with conspiracy to cheat and substantive further counts of money laundering over £12 million pounds. It was alleged that £1.3 Million went through this Defendants two accounts. This matter was fully prepared for trial and an application was made to dismiss the count of conspiracy on this Defendants behalf. This was a very complex VHCC case.

  • R v Chatha – (Conspiracy to Facilitate Illegal Entry)

    This case involved the arrest of many members of an extended family alleged to be involved in human trafficking. A deal was struck in relation to this Defendant who pleaded to a count of conspiracy and the other two Defendants pleaded to much lesser single substantive counts. Counsel later defended all three defendants in The Court of Appeal with the latter two being successful. This was a very complex case which also had contested confiscation proceedings.
