Kidnap, Blackmail and false imprisonment: MPR to defend serious crime case

We have been instructed to represent a Bengali-speaking man charged with kidnap, false imprisonment and blackmail.

Around 40 officers from the Metropolitan Police Service’s specialist Kidnap Squad raided a council estate in Bow earlier this month in an attempt to secure the release of a man being held captive by a gang of abductors. Some of the officers were armed with machine guns and used explosives to gain entry into the building.

The case is being prosecuted by the Crown Prosecution Service’s Special Casework Directorate based at Ludgate Hill. This team of specialist CPS lawyers deal with only the most serious of cases.

At MPR Solicitors, we regularly defend cases being prosecuted by the Special Casework Directorate and are familiar with the way in which they work.

We have an experienced team of lawyers and legal advisors  that specialise in defending serious and complex crime including prosecutions by SOCA, Flying Squad, Operation Trident and HMRC. The department has specialists at all levels of criminal defence from police station advisers to senior solicitors and a team of Higher Court Advocates headed by a Senior Barrister from a leading London set of Barristers Chambers listed in the Legal 500.
