Michael Polak has succeeded in a private prosecution for Assault Occasioning Actual Bodily Harm where the defendant was sentenced to 200 hours of unpaid work, ordered to pay compensation, and a costs order was made in the complainant’s favour. This case concerned a violent incident whereby a taxi driver assaulted his neighbour by striking him to the eye and kicking him to the floor because the neighbour had parked in a communal parking spot that the defendant had marked as his taxi spot. The defendant in this case had been cautioned by the police despite the complainant not agreeing to this course of action. The complainant suffers problems with his vision caused by the attack.
Michael Polak was instructed in this case from its inception, advising on the charge, assisting with the laying of the information, and making written submissions to the court for a summons to be issued. The prosecution also included extensive written submissions to the CPS not to take over the prosecution and discontinue it as well as a full day abuse of process hearing. Michael’s lay client was very pleased with the results of the case after feeling that the authorities had failed him following the attack.
Michael was instructed by Mr Bassam Tablieh of John Street Solicitors.
Michael Polak is available to provide advice and representation for private prosecutions.
