R v BR (2021)
Led by Ali Bajwa QC, represented a defendant charged with double murder alongside two co-defendants. The Crown’s case was that the three defendants had planned and committed the murders together acting as a team. The two co-defendants both blamed BR for the murders. The case advanced on behalf of BR was that the two co-defendants alone had committed the murders. BR’s case involved the careful analysis and reconstruction of events using the circumstantial evidence, including that of eyewitnesses, DNA, pathology, CCTV/ANPR cameras, and mobile phone usage/movement. After an eight-week trial and a day of deliberations, the jury unanimously convicted the two co-defendants of both murders and acquitted BR of all charges.
