R v H, B

This case involved allegations by Customs and Excise of the laundering of millions of pounds of money through the Hawala Banking system with funds being sent to Dubai and Pakistan.

 

Although convicted, both Defendants subsequently had their convictions quashed on appeal and re-trials were ordered. This case involved many complex legal issues, one in the Court of Appeal as a preparatory hearing which dealt with the question of duplicitous counts and the second was the Court of Appeal decision quashing the convictions based upon the required verbal element needed to prove a conspiracy.
