Zayd Ahmed secures not guilty verdicts in possession with intent to supply class A and B at Wood Green Crown Court.


Zayd Ahmed successfully defends his client, a man of previous good character charged with possession of class A and B drugs with intent to supply.

Prior to the trial, Zayd drafted an extensive defence statement, drafted a non-defendant bad character application and a s78 application to exclude evidence from a search and interview.

At a Pre-trial review, having made oral submissions, the Crown took instructions and confirmed they will be offering no evidence in light of the defence submissions.

The defendant was, therefore, acquitted months before the trial. The defendant maintains his good character and was very grateful to Zayd for his submissions.

Zayd was instructed by EBR Attridge LLP.
