Allison Clare QC acts for former Glasgow Rangers owner Craig Whyte: FCA criminal proceedings dropped
The FCA alleged Mr Whyte had failed to comply with a section 49 RIPA notice in respect of passwords to various electronic devices. This was the FCA’s first ever prosecution for this offence. A trial date had been set at Manchester Crown Court for September but the FCA recently announced its discontinuance of the proceedings following representations by the defence team.
Allison was instructed by Gary Rubin of Blackfords Solicitors.
