G20 Space Hijackers Cleared

Michael Wolkind QC was briefed to appear for 11 members of the Space Hijackers, a benign theatrical protest group. During the G20 demonstrations on April 1st 2009 they drove into London on a Saracen armoured personnel carrier to the accompanying sound of Ride of The Valkyries. They were all charged with Impersonating Police Officers and their boiler suits and helmets were the basis of a further charge concerning police uniform. Following his conference and advice, communicated to the CPS by his solicitor Raj Chada of Hodge Jones and Allen, the prosecution was dropped as having insufficient prospect of success.
