Success for Michael Polak in Large Scale Drug Importation Trial at Canterbury Crown Court
Church Court Chambers’ barrister Michael Polak secured his client a unanimous acquittal in a trial which finished today at Canterbury Crown Court. Michael Polak’s client, an Italian national, was stopped when entering the United Kingdom at Dover Port and the van he was driving was found to be carrying 134 kg of high-purity cocaine. At one of the first COVID trials at Canterbury Crown Court in July of this year the jury were unable to reach a verdict and the case was set for a retrial this week which resulted in Michael’s client being found not guilty by the jury.
