Acquittals in the Yousef Makki trial

Alistair Webster Q.C. and Alex Leach have just completed the successful defence of Boy A in the Yousef Makki murder trial.  Yousef was a MGS pupil and the case has featured widely in the national press.

Commenting on the acquittals, Alistair said: “ This was a very difficult and emotive trial. We sought to persuade the jury to strip away the emotions which inevitably go with such a case and the jury clearly accepted our analysis.  We were supported by the hard work and commitment of Zita Spencer of Olliers and Boy A had Kate Blackwell Q.C. to thank for a persuasive and successful bail application.”
