Kyri Argyropoulos secures acquittal for loaded firearm with intent to endanger life

Kyri Argyropoulos, instructed by Nick Jennaway of ITN Solicitors, represented ‘ZT’ at Harrow Crown Court.

ZT was the driver of a vehicle subjected to a ‘Hard Stop’ by firearms officers. A loaded 9mm semi automatic pistol with 12 live rounds of ammunition. was found in the middle of the rear seat of his 2 door Range Rover Evoque. In addition a number of latex gloves were also found. He was charged under s16 with intent. In a deceptively simple case additional unused material requested, proved very fruitful and raised some difficult questions of the prosecution case.
