Murder conviction quashed

22/08/2022

Edward Henry KC instructed by Michael Strauss of SGK successfully overturned a murder conviction on the 19th of August 2022, without saying a word.

The CACD (Lord Justice Fulford presiding) invited the Respondent to justify the safety of the conviction at the outset. Two serious material irregularities during the trial involving the jury had not been adequately dealt with by the trial judge.

An anonymity order was made, pending a retrial, in which Edward will again lead Ruth Becker of 9 Bedford Row.
