S18 GBH with intent - Not Guilty - 2021
Malik represented DC. He was one of several defendants charged with GBH with intent and violent disorder. He was the only defendant to be acquitted. The incident was captured on CCTV. In preparing his case, he was able to identify breaches of PACE and as a result of this important identification evidence relied upon by the prosecution was excluded by the court. He was also able to find language experts to contradict the interpretation of text messages sent by DC which the prosecution expert said amounted to a confession and admission of presence at the scene.
