Criminal asset case success for Imran Shafi

May 29, 2014

Imran Shafi from Exchange Chambers has acted for Zeenat Farooqi, wife of convicted terrorist Munir Farooqi in an important criminal asset case.

Instructed by Jawad Babar, partner at Stokoe Partnership, Imran successfully resisted the prosecution application to forfeit the family home pursuant to powers under the Terrorism Act. It is believed that this is the first such application pursued in the courts.

Deputy High Court Judge Richard Henriques said seizing the home would adversely affect the family, rendering six innocent adults and two children homeless.
