Dr. Andreas O’Shea’s Successful Cross-Examination

22 December 2020

Dr. Andreas O’Shea represented a defendant in a trial at Isleworth Crown Court from the 23rd November to the 9th December 2020, facing allegations of aggravated burglary (with a firearm), threats to kill, criminal damage and witness intimidation. After a successful cross-examination of the complainant, the defendant did not give evidence. He was then acquitted on all four counts on the indictment.

Having extensive experience as counsel in international criminal trials, he has worked in international teams, contributing to the acquittals of high profile individuals including the former Minister of Education in Rwanda, André Rwamakuba, and the former president of Ivory Coast, Laurent Bagbo.
