Twenty Three other men were found guilty and received prison sentences.

The case was handled by Abdullah Al-Yunusi who is the head of our Serious Fraud Department who led the defence team in the preparation of defence.  Our meticulous preparation on behalf of our client ultimately paid dividends and highlighted the flaws in the prosecution case leading to the best outcome for our client.
