Anisha Kiri secures acquittal for client charged with assaulting an emergency worker


Anisha’s client was charged with assaulting an emergency worker, namely a detention officer. It was the crown’s case that the defendant had punched the officer whilst being held in the police station following his arrest. Despite evidence from two officers and photographs of the injury, Anisha’s client was found not guilty by a unanimous verdict.

Anisha successfully advanced that her client lacked the requisite mens rea, acting reflexively having been pushed by the complainant officer.

Anisha was instructed by Wajid Manzoor from Irvine Thanvi Natas.
