Successful convictions achieved in Operation Apex

Albion Chambers played an important part in securing the convictions of a group of men who conspired with their ringleader to either rob owners of very high-value motor vehicles, using the tactic of disguise and aggressive confrontation, or pervert the course of justice by concealing the appearance of a car used to commit a serious criminal offence. Kannan Siva, leading Chloe Griggs, was instructed by the CPS West Midlands, Complex Casework Unit. The four-week trial took place in February and March this year, with the defendants being sentenced in May. The evidence at trial involved analysis of complex telephony, and also included a hit-and-run road traffic incident during a string of robberies, where a 67-year-old man was seriously injured. The ringleader, who did not contest the trial, received a substantial term of imprisonment, ordered to run consecutively to his earliest release date of his existing life sentence.
