Amjad Malik QC Succeeds on Appeal on Whole Life Sentence

Amjad Malik QC successfully appealed the whole life Sentence imposed upon Ian Stewart before a specially constituted Court of Appeal, led by the Lord Chief Justice.

The Court has given clear guidance on the exceptional nature of a whole life sentence and Ian Stewart, together with Wayne Couzens and three other cases were dealt with.

Amjad Malik QC’s submissions were accepted and Ian Stewart’s whole life sentence was found not to fall within the categories of whole life sentences.
