Acquittal on murder charge for grime star represented by Paul Keleher QC

Paul Keleher QC, instructed by Miriam Altaf of LP Evans, was acquitted on all counts in a high profile murder case. Romarne Young, a well-known grime star, was accused of arranging a shooting when a man was machine-gunned on a street in Harlesden. He was acquitted when the prosecution offered no further evidence after a prosecution witness admitted he had lied and effectively gave him an alibi.  The prosecution case - which purported to show the defendant’s car on CCTV near the scene of the shooting - began to collapse when it was shown that the car on CCTV was not the defendants but a different car altogether and cross-examination showed that the cell-site evidence of the night in question was generally consistent with his behaviour in preceding weeks.
