R v B

One of a number of alcohol diversion fraud cases prosecuted by Revenue and Customs in 1997 and is commonly referred to as the  ‘Hare Wines’ case resulting in a loss of excise duty  in the sum of £35 million.


The prosecution was the first of its kind and due to its size and number of defendants the indictment was split to accomodate a number of trials.


A not guilty verdict was achieved for our client.

Case represented by the Opus Law Team.
