Kerim Fuad QC leading Robert Newcombe secure another Acquittal for Murder and Manslaughter

The jury at the Old Bailey unanimously acquitted the client on charges of murder and also manslaughter as a lesser alternative.

The incident arose over a £20 drug debt in Plashett Park in East Ham on 15th October 2017. The defendant’s case was that he threw one punch at a man who he thought was an aggressor and then withdrew from the incident. Another man then stabbed without anyone seeing the fatal blow. The deceased died at the scene from a single wound to the heart.

Messrs Fuad QC and Newcombe were instructed by Mahomed Ismail of MFI Law, Solicitors.
