Stokoe Partnership Solicitors Partner Amjid Jabbar succeeds in Judicially Reviewing Search Warrants (s.8 PACE 1984) granted by St Albans Magistrates’ Court. The search warrants were quashed and an order for damages to be paid was made.

Amjid was representing an individual whose home and an associated business was searched by the police. Following a challenge as to the legality of the searches, which was resisted, the police accepted that the warrants and therefore the searches were unlawful. Damages were awarded to his clients.
