R v JJ (Swansea Crown Court) – 2016

1 July 2016

Ali Dewji’s client was the lead defendant in a multi-handed case arising out of the collapse of a motor home dealership. Despite starting out facing 22 counts of theft and fraud, and undergoing multiple trials and legal arguments over several years, in the end Ali’s client was cleared of all charges. At trial, Ali raised arguments based on contract law and equity and trusts that resulted in several counts being withdrawn from the jury and the trial itself being halted. The prosecution eventually offered no evidence on the remaining charges.
