Michael Neofytou secures not guilty verdict in Operation Abbeyville

In a trial lasting 5 weeks at Croydon Crown Court, Michael Neofytou representing Steven Wynne, secured a unanimous not guilty verdict. The trial, which was prosecuted by QC and junior and codenamed Operation Abbeyville arose from an investigation that began in 2012. The allegations focused on several deaf defendants who were alleged to have defrauded the DWP of almost £700,000 in the Government Access to Work payment scheme. The trial, which was followed by the BBC, will be the feature of a television documentary. Michael Neofytou was instructed by Diana Payne of Blackfords.
