Narita Bahra QC appeared in The Times article ‘Disclosure Week’ marred by collapses which was published over the weekend.
The article followed Narita’s high profile £3million diamond fraud trial which collapsed on 19th October following a ‘litany’ of failures and a discovery by Narita, leading Nicola Higgins of Matrix Chambers, that the prosecution’s expert had a commercial relationship with the Metropolitan Police.
In The Times article, Narita was quoted saying that “disclosure is the prosecutor’s friend and not it’s foe” and that [disclosure] leads to safe convictions.
Narita went on to say that “Until investigators and prosecutors embrace disclosure, they will continue to approach prosecutions from the wrong angle.”
