Mistaken Arrest Leads to Compensation

Mar 18 2011

Our client was arrested last year by officers from West Mercia Police who executed a warrant for his arrest. The arrest warrant however was in connection with an unproven allegation that had been withdrawn.

Our client was held in custody and produced before Worcester Magistrates Court. The Court records confirmed that the Police had been notified in 2008 that the Warrant had been withdrawn.

We successfully brought a claim for wrongful arrest and false imprisonment against West Mercia Police who have now paid our client 5000, plus his legal costs, in an out of court settlement.

The claim was handled by our Mr G S Kang who heads the Actions against the Police Department.

We acted for our client on a no win, no fee basis and he received 100% of his compensation.
