Abbey Solicitors were instructed in respect of Operation Petral which was a case extending for a year between 2015 and 2016. The nature of which was a substantial (c. £5.6m) multi-commodity drugs supply conspiracy trial involving Organised Crime Groups. Our barrister was instructed as Leading Junior for the client, first on the indictment and said to be principal of the OCG. The crimes accused included the possession of many kilos of Class A drugs, as well as allegations of perverting the course of justice, levelled at a well-known solicitor in the Manchester area. The case included the examination of over 100,000 pages of telecoms evidence. The proceedings were drawn to a conclusion at Manchester Crown Court.
