Alex Balancy leading Estelle Thornber secured the acquittal of their client on 14 Counts of Conspiracy to Supply and Offer to Supply a variety of class A, B and C Drugs. These included Cocaine, Heroin and the largest seizure of GHB/GBL in London to date. Their client, a young Brazilian National, was also acquitted on 2 Counts of Money Laundering of hundreds of thousands of pounds.
The Prosecution alleged that the Defendant was part of a serious Organised Crime Group distributing drugs to order using a fleet of couriers in an ‘Uber for Drugs’ style operation.

Six of the Defendant’s co-accused were convicted. Alex and Estelle’s client was acquitted on all 16 counts following a two months trial.
