GTS today persuaded the Security Intelligence Agency [SIA] to discontinue the charge against our client, CI.
CI was due to stand trial in relation to one charge contrary to section 22(1)(a) of the Private Security Industry Act 2001. CI was alleged to have provided false information to the SIA.
Written representations were submitted to the SIA on behalf of CI, arguing there was no realistic prospect of conviction. Upon considering the representations, the SIA confirmed the charge against CI would be discontinued.
Had he been convicted, CI would have likely lost his career in the security industry.
CI was represented by Will Russell and Kevin Williams of our Bromley Office.
