At Oxford Crown Court we represented a client in relation to an allegation of Conspiracy to Supply Class A Drugs (10 KG of Cocaine). This case was investigated by the National Crime Agency. It was alleged that the Defendant had conspired with others to supply 10 Kilos of cocaine from London to Oxford.
This case was part of the first wave of prosecutions in UK involving Encrochat evidence after police forces across Europe had been able to infiltrate the Encrochat phone network which was known to be used by criminal gangs.
The crown heavily relied on cell site, ANPR and Encrochat Evidence to imply that the defendant was part of an organised crime group.
The Defendant maintained his innocence throughout and was the only defendant to be acquitted after trial.
