Identity Charade - Senior Partner can't believe his eyes.

Feb 24 2012

That was the reaction when the Senior Partner of Murria Solicitors went to Steelhouse Lane Police Station on 6 October 2011, to represent a client on an assault charge. Before interview, he insisted upon seeing the CCTV recording of the offence. Upon viewing the video Mr Makhan Singh recalls laughing at the difference between the assailant on screen and his client. It was definitely a case of "little and large". Despite this the arresting officer refused to admit the mistake and the Custody Officer needed to be called to agree the obvious error and our client was released without charge.

Murria Solicitors submitted a civil action for wrongful arrest and false imprisonment and in February 2012 West Midlands Police agreed to pay 2,200 compensation plus legal costs and offered an apology as well as agreeing to seek to remove our client's DNA and fingerprint records from the Police National Database.
