EncroChat Acquittal

30/06/2021

Matthew and Daniel’s client, JV, was charged with serious drugs and firearms offences having been investigated as part of Operation Venetic, the EncroChat operation initiated by the National Crime Agency.

The defence successfully argued that the relevant phone could not properly be attributed to the defendant, a contention accepted by the prosecution. The Crown offered no evidence resulting in ‘not guilty’ verdicts on all counts, and JV’s release from custody.
