Michael Polak was acting for one of the United Kingdom’s top precious metal merchants in a case which concerned a European antiques dealer who was stopped before entering the Eurotunnel and found to be in possession of €42,000. This amount was said to be a security payment in regard to a large amount of silver, sold to the company, before its true value could be determine by melt and assay.
After a lengthy hearing the Judge decided in favour of the company that Michael was representing and ordered that the money be returned to them. Costs were also ordered in their favour.
Michael was instructed by Wayne Brooks of BH-Mohammed Solicitors.
