Following a 5-week trial at Southwark Crown Court, the trial judge, HHJ Grieve, QC, ruled that Mr A had no defence to the charge.
He therefore entered a plea of Guilty on a negotiated basis which was agreed by the Crown. This Basis of Plea, which was negotiated by George on his client’s behalf, effectively spared the client from an immediate prison sentence. The Basis of Plea, plus the powerful mitigation that George advanced, led to the trial judge imposing a 6-month Suspended Sentence for effectively supplying generic aircraft parts that were thought likely destined for Iran’s nuclear program.
Following the Sentence, George was quoted in the national press:
