JMW successful in appeal in Unaoil conviction

Sam Healey, Partner at JMW Solicitors, said: “We’re extremely pleased that Mr Whiteley’s appeal has been successful.  Given the concerns with disclosure in this case and the conduct of the SFO, the Court of Appeal has today agreed to overturn his conviction.

“This case has cast a dark cloud over Mr Whiteley’s life for several years; it has been the catalyst for a series of health concerns, has caused immense financial strain and has weighed heavily on his partner and the rest of his family. Today’s news means that Mr Whiteley can now begin to live his life again and we wish both him and his family all the best for the future.”
