Paul Raudnitz acted for JG, trustee of the Kids Integrated Cancer Treatment charity which was set up to raise funds for treatment of children affected by cancer and financial assistance and educational information for their families.
The case was originally the subject of a Charity Commission enquiry and was then referred to the police. JG was one of six defendants charged with fraud and money laundering offences. Following sustained defence representations, and repeated applications for disclosure, the CPS conceded that there was no realistic prospect of conviction and the prosecution offered no evidence; JG was formally found “not guilty” of all charges. Paul Raudnitz was instructed by Ian Besant, partner of Wright Hassall LLP. [“R v Weir & Others] 8 October 2015
