Abdul Iqbal QC & Shufqat Khan secure acquittal in “contract shooting” casePark Square Barristers
Abdul Iqbal QC and Shufqat Khan represented Ibrahim Malik at Leeds Crown Court. Following a four-week trial, they secured his acquittal on counts of attempted murder and possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life. In this multi-handed case, the defendant was alleged to have been the organiser who had planned and co-ordinated the shooting, at point blank range, of a drug dealer.
The defence team successfully applied to exclude unreliable central prosecution evidence. The defence also successfully presented detailed evidence to counter the prosecution assertions of planning and preparation by Ibrahim Malik.
Abdul Iqbal QC appears for the defence in serious crime (homicide, terrorism, serious fraud).
Shufqat Khan appears for the defence in serious crime.
They were instructed by Kamrans Solicitors, Leeds.
