Mohammed Ullah represented Mr Bajaj, who was accused with other defendants, who operated a car repair and sales business, of being involved in ‘ringing’ high performance cars on a massive scale and selling thousands of parts through e-bay accounts.

The Crown intended to prove that the parts were stolen by reference to information contained within the Police National Computer, which was extracted and provided to the defence on the first day of trial. No hearsay application had been made prior to the trial in reference to this material and no approach was made to the DVLA to attempt to establish from that agency the source of the parts in question.

Having carefully analysed the material, we were able to establish discrepancies between the serial numbers of a number of the parts seized by police and alleged to have originated from stolen vehicles and those listed in the material extracted from the Police National Computer. On the basis of these discrepancies we were able to successfully argue (i) that the material extracted from the Police National Computer upon which the Crown wished to rely was unreliable and the source unclear; and (ii) bearing in mind how late the material itself had been provided to the defence, the Crown ought not to be allowed to rely upon it in any event.

Following legal argument on these issues, the judge refused to entertain the Crown’s hearsay application on the basis that the material was served late and its reliability could not be established. The Crown was forced to offer no evidence in respect of all defendants.

Mohammed Ullah has been instructed to act for the first of 5 defendants in an ongoing Very High Costs Case in which all defendants are alleged to be responsible for money laundering on a vast scale, facilitated through the activities of two central London Bureaux de Change. The allegation revolves around transactions totaling in excess of €100 million, the profits from which are said to have been invested in property both in the UK and abroad. The arrests were preceded by an extensive and lengthy surveillance operation. This matter is on-going.

Shupai Malianga of Ullah Law Associates represented Mr T (aged 16) on a charge of Murder.

Mr T was acquitted of murder and convicted of manslaughter after a 4-week trial at the Old Bailey, Central Criminal Court in February.

Mr Malianga worked closely with instructed trial Counsel Jane Bickerstaff QC and Corinne Bramwell and was involved throughout the criminal proceedings, from Mr T’s surrender at the police station through to sentence, providing advice and support to Mr T and his family.

This grave case involving the most serious charge required the cross-examination of a number of young, school-age eye-witnesses who made use of special measures which allowed their evidence to be given by live video-link to the courtroom. There was also a significant amount of CCTV and telephone evidence including cell-site analysis relied upon. Mr Malianga travelled to visit Mr T in custody on numerous occasions to ensure this evidence was understood and proper instructions taken and advice given.
