A multi-million-pound diamond scam case collapsed after it emerged that the prosecution’s star witness was a fantasist with no qualifications. Between May 2011 and February 2015, more than 70 victims – mainly vulnerable pensioners – were conned into investing into one of five companies which invested in the diamond and carbon credit industries.
Narita Bahra QC, who represented Mr Sulley, said outside court:“There is a public perception that disclosure failures are limited to cases involving sexual offences. But the reality is that they are not.
“The onus shouldn’t be put on a good defence team to alert the prosecution to the failures in their case.”TELEGRAPH BBC NEWS THE TIMES THE GUARDIAN
