Peter Lownds represents a man acquitted of involvement in Grenfell Tower fraud

Peter Lownds represented a man accused of involvement in a fraud in which it was alleged that dishonest misrepresentations were made to the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and various relief charities to obtain free accommodation and financial support that had been made available to those who had been resident at Grenfell Tower at the time of the fire. It was the prosecution case that Peter’s client, a former Afghanistan police officer who was a resident at Grenfell Tower, had made false representations on behalf of his brother, who it was alleged was a non-resident and not entitled to the support.

Following an eight-week trial at Isleworth Crown Court his client was acquitted.

Peter was instructed by Shane Parkin of Forbes Solicitors.
