MPR secure bail for man "on the run" in Spain

  • Posted

Our client had been wanted since the beginning of 2017 by the UK authorities in relation to serious outstanding charges that he faced under the jurisdiction of England and Wales. A European Arrest Warrant had been executed and Interpol Red Flags assigned. He was finally traced to Spain and detained. He was transferred to a High Security Prison in Madrid before being formally extradited to the UK.

Upon arrival in the UK, we were able to work with our client and his family. After preparing the right bail package with supporting evidence and knowing when to put in the application at the right time, we were able to secure conditional bail even though the application was opposed by the Prosecution and in this case the SFO (Serious Fraud Office).

The defence team was led by Seema Parikh, a Partner at MPR solicitors who has specialist knowledge and expertise in defending Serious Fraud and has a track record in securing bail for clients in difficult and complex cases from the investigative stage through to criminal proceedings.

At MPR solicitors, we have the experience and expertise to defend complex and serious fraud and all aspects of Business Crime and what is generally called “White Collar Fraud”.

We are able to offer a comprehensive and bespoke service to individuals and companies facing investigation and prosecution.

We are able to offer second opinions and detailed advice on bail.
