The case concerned a diamond investment scheme.

Legal argument and disclosure requests made by the Bloor team led to the prosecution’s acceptance of profound inconsistencies in its case.

As a result, the Crown offered no evidence against all defendants on day 24 of the trial at Southwark Crown Court. Not guilty verdicts were returned by the jury on direction of the Judge.
