A’s husband had been separately charged with several counts of fraud, committed whilst he was employed at The Commonwealth Secretariat and advising the Government of Maldives. He later assumed position an international law firm and defrauded a number of wealthy clients of the firm.

Katie wrote to the CPS inviting them to review the evidential test of the Code for Crown Prosecutors. In the unusual circumstances of this case the defence provided the prosecution with further evidence demonstrating why the mental element of the offence was not satisfied. Katie also insisted that further, specific inquiries, be conducted. As a result of the representations advanced on behalf of her client, the CPS offered no evidence. The client’s husband was convicted and sentenced to 7 years 6 months imprisonment.
