Zayd Ahmed successful in affray and GBH trial having excluded ID evidence on day of trial


Zayd Ahmed successfully represented the defendant in a trial at Oxford Crown Court where he was indicted for affray and GBH.

On the day of trial, Zayd made an application under section 78 of PACE to exclude the identification evidence of a key witness due to failures in complying with the codes of practice.

After successful submissions, the evidence was excluded, and the Crown reviewed the case against his client and confirmed they will be offering no evidence.

The judge then formally entered not guilty pleas against his client.

After a 4 year wait, his client walks away with his good character and can finally put this matter behind him.

Zayd was instructed by Angela Porter Solicitors, Oxford.

To instruct Zayd, please contact the clerks.
