The trial of the suspects surrounding the deaths of 39 Vietnamese nationals who were found in a lorry trailer begins at the Old Bailey today, with 4 individuals facing manslaughter and immigration charges.
The victims’ bodies were discovered on an industrial estate in Grays soon after the lorry had arrived in the UK on a ferry from Zeebrugge in Belgium. Maurice Robinson, the lorry driver, entered a guilty plea to 39 counts of manslaughter in April.
Alisdair Williamson QC appears for Eamon Harrison. William Emlyn Jones appears as lead counsel for the prosecution.
