Court considers applications for extensions of time and the quashing of convictions following alleged, deliberate non-disclosure


Re: R v Ibori & Ors [2018] EWCA 2291 (Crim)

This is an appeal concerning “grave allegations of police corruption and deliberate non-disclosure, such that, given the need to maintain the integrity of the justice system, it is said to have been unfair to try the applicants. Accordingly, the applicants submit that their applications for extensions of time and leave to appeal should be granted and their convictions quashed”.

The Court dismissed all applications on Ibori’s behalf. It further dismissed applications for leave to appeal and EOT’s advanced on behalf of the remaining applicants.

Matthew Ryder QC was involved in this case.
