Naeem Mian QC secures acquittal of man charged with planning a Bombing Campaign on the UK Mainland

Naeem Mian QC has successfully represented his client who was charged with Terrorism offences after it was alleged he had been planning an attack in the UK.

Following a trial lasting some five weeks at Kingston Crown Court, a jury found Naeem’s client not guilty of planning a bombing campaign on the UK mainland. The evidence against his client included extensive communications with a number of individuals based overseas, various documents on bomb making and messages from his client to others suggesting that he wanted to die as a martyr.

It was necessary for Naeem to carry out extensive cross-examination of Prosecution witnesses and an examination of complex theological concepts. His client gave evidence and was cross-examined for some 5 days.

Naeem was instructed on this case by Mike Reilly of Wainwright Cummings Solicitors.
