R v. M.A.T & Others - Murder
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.
