BSQ private client partner Roger Sahota has secured a settlement from a state investigating agency in respect to our latest search-warrant challenge.
BSQ’s client, was said to have been a major figure in an international people smuggling operation. BSQ was approached pre-charge to provide a second opinion in the case. Judicial review proceedings were on review initiated against the state agency, who conceded that the warrants executed were unlawful. A settlement figure in compensation has been agreed. An application to exclude all the material found in the search under s.59 of the CJA is ongoing. No charges have been laid against our client.
Roger Sahota is one of the countries leading experts in challenging search warrants and has been instructed in a number of cases where we have successfully quashed warrants unlawfully obtained by state agencies.
