Asil Nadir: conviction in question

Asil Nadir: conviction in question

Questions about the validity of the Serious Fraud Office case against TRNC businessman Asil Nadir have been raised again.

This time the issue is around crates of evidence which have been “discovered” at the SFO offices and which, according to the Times newspaper reports were withheld from court proceedings by the SFO.

However it should be noted that this evidence relates to another trial of Mr Nadir in 1993 where he was accused of bribing a judge. It was discovered that this accusation was based on a fabrication by a police informant and the judge, Mr Justice Tucker received an apology.

Lawyers for Mr Nadir are calling for a full disclosure of this evidence.
