Henry Grunwald QC secures acquittal of client charged with murder

Henry Grunwald QC, instructed by Stephen Fidler & Co, leading Piers Kiss-Wison, solicitor-advocate from the firm, yesterday secured the acquittal at the Central Criminal Court on a charge of murder of an eighteen year old client. The Crown’s case was that the 16 year-old victim of the fatal stabbing in Peckham had been killed as part of a gang retaliation for a perceived act of disrespect. The Defence was alibi and wrongful identification. The trial had begun at the beginning of December, and the jury deliberated for some two and a half days.
