Liam represented H at trial at Basildon Crown Court in relation to the possession with intent to supply of import quality cocaine with a street value of circa £1 million.
Liam’s client had been under observation by the National Crime Agency (NCA) and was alleged to be part of an Organised Criminal Network (OCN) involved in the supply of large quantities of Class A drugs.
Mr H was observed handing over 5 kilos of cocaine by undercover officers from the NCA. Upon arrest a further kilo of cocaine was found under the seat of H’s car in addition to another five kilos found at the defendant’s address along with cash and imitation firearms.
Liam successfully ran duress at trial, satisfying the evidential burden (unusually placed upon the defence in such cases) and persuaded the jury that the defendant had most likely been the victim of threats of unlawful violence and coercion.
H was acquitted. His co-defendant, who had been receiving five kilos of cocaine from H at the time of arrest, was convicted by the unanimous verdict of the jury and received seven years imprisonment.
Liam was instructed by Shofna Begum of Stewart Begum Solicitors.
