An arrest warrant has been issued for Massimo Bochicchio after he failed to appear at Croydon Magistrates’ Court for the first appearance in a private prosecution case.

Due to his failure to appear on Monday 7 December, District Judge Dean issued a warrant for the arrest of Bochicchio to bring him before the court.”
The Batacchis are represented by Lee Adams and Amy Shaffron of JMW Solicitors and David Whittaker QC of 2 Hare Court. The investigation team includes Dr Emmanouil Ioannidis of FIN1 Compliance and Marlon Pinto of AnotherDay.
