Pump Court

Crown offers no evidence in £28m excise duty diversion case

Cases 28 Oct 13

Jamas Hodivala and Sam Magee, instructed by John Dance of Clarke Kiernan solicitors, secured the acquittal of the first defendant following the Crown’s decision to offer no evidence in a large conspiracy to evade excise duty. The allegation involved a number of European alcohol businesses alleged to be fraudulently trading.

The acquittal followed a number of targeted disclosure requests from HMRC, resulting in leading counsel for the Crown’s decision that the prosecution had no confidence that HMRC had discharged its disclosure obligations. The acquittal marks the latest in an ongoing series of disclosure failures in such cases.
