Guy Bowden successfully defends in million pound boiler room fraud, as prosecution offer no evidence following defence submissions

January 20, 2017

This case concerned two alleged conspiracies to defraud members of the public by selling them shares and sending them fake stock certificates/agreements/invoices. The total loss to the public identified as a result of these two conspiracies was estimated to be well over £1,000,000. On Day 4 of the trial, following defence disclosure requests and argument, the prosecution agreed with defence submissions that all three defendants could not receive a fair trial, and they therefore offered no evidence.
