Zayd Ahmed obtains acquittal for defendant indicted with affray.


Zayd Ahmed successfully defended his client charged with affray where glass bottles and other weapons were used.

Zayd, having considered the evidence served at the Plea and Trial Preparation Hearing, argued at Worcester Crown Court that there was no evidence to prove the offence and that the case ought to be dismissed today without any further delay.

The Crown sought time to review and after representations made by Zayd on the evidence and the elements of the offence, the Crown offered no evidence, a formal not guilty plea then formally entered on the clients’ behalf.

Zayd demonstrates the importance of challenging the case at all stages of the Court process.
