R v Z & others - Murder

Mohammed Ullah of ULA Solicitors represented Z on a charge of conspiracy to murder. The victim and the defendants were all youths. The prosecution case was presented as the victim was chased in the streets and stabbed repeatedly before being left while the defendants fled the scene.

The case involved meticulous investigation as there were several key eye-witnesses who were closely related to the killing. A large amount of evidence was collated in relation to the murder which included CCTV footage, data from seized mobile phones and forensic testing from clothing. Mohammed worked closely with the appointed counsel and went above and beyond to ensure the defendant received a fair trial and all pre-incident details were thoroughly investigated and presented in the trial.

As a result of the nature of the case and the murder being gang related, Mohammed was able to present the defendant's case resulting in a reduced custodial sentence of 22 years.
