R v V and others (2019)

Successful submission of no case to answer in modern slavery case.

Nadesh Karu, led by Darryl Cherrett, represented one of eight defendants charged with conspiracy to traffic, conspiracy to require others to perform forced and compulsory labour and laundering the proceeds (over £2 million). The prosecution case lasted over six weeks, and was the result of a joint investigation by the English and Romanian authorities. At the close of the prosecution case a submission of no case to answer was successful on all three counts.

Nadesh was instructed by O’Keefe’s solicitors.
