Zayd Ahmed successful in fraud trial where defendant had allegedly abused his position causing a loss of over £80,000.


Zayd Ahmed successfully represented the defendant in a fraud trial where the defendant had allegedly breached his position of trust to defraud the complainant of over £80,000 by transferring monies from her account to his over a significant period of time.

The crown made numerous hearsay applications under s116 of the criminal justice act 2003, which were successfully opposed by Mr Ahmed in an oral hearing at Snaresbrook Crown Court. This led to the hearsay evidence relied on being excluded and the Crown subsequently offered no evidence.

Zayd was instructed by Mary Dickinson of Forbes Solicitors.
