Herbie Hide & John Alford Apply to CCRC to Have Their Convictions Overturned

herbie-hide-john-alfordBoth Mr Hide and Mr Alford sustained convictions as a result of separate ‘sting’ operations by Mazher Mahmood, “The Fake Sheikh”. Both men received disclosure packs from the CPS thanks to comments made by the Recorder of Southwark, HHJ McCreath, in July 2014, and have now applied to the CCRC (Criminal Case Review Commission) to have these convictions reviewed and referred to the Court of Appeal.

Mr Hide was recently interviewed by ITN news about this issue.

If you have also been affected by this issue, or have received a similar disclosure pack from the CPS, please contact Siobhain Egan of this office, who is currently working with Mark Lewis of Taylor Hampden Solicitors (dealing with relevant civil claims), by telephone on 0207 387 2032 or complete our online enquiry form here.
