Antiques dealer acquitted of mammoth drug supply

16.10.14 | |

At the Old Bailey today Andrew Collins charged with conspiracy to supply tonnes of cannabis, was gloriously acquitted having been represented by James Wood QC leading Dino Charalambous from Stokoe Partnership.


Collins was found in possession of 27 drug dealing mobile phones, which the jury rightly accepted had only recently been received by him in a bag and were to be used for charitable use and for recycling in South Africa. As part of his defence, Collins called members of his family and his Hindu Guru who came from South Africa to attend the Old Bailey trial.
