Tim Kendal, instructed by Messrs Freeths, successfully petitioned the DPP to intervene and discontinue a private prosecution relating to a liquidation of a construction company. The case had been launched by an Insolvency Practitioner as an “alternative” means of pursuing the two directors of a limited company. Representations to the DPP were made suggesting that there was no evidence of any crime having been committed and a prosecution was not in the public interest. The DPP determined there was insufficient evidence to support a prosecution and discontinued the case.
