In September 2019, these young men were sleeping peacefully alongside five men after the day's work when they were raided by the police for the lose of car battery worth #50,000. Like play like play, they ended up at the police station and was later charged for stealing. The battery belonged to their employer. Since he couldn't pin point the actual thief, he assumed they stole it. We got their brief and did our best as usual. The employer refused to attend the court proceedings and just abandoned them in prison while he enjoyed his freedom. Fortunately, our lawyer was able to secure the striking out of the matter and the boys are now back home. This so called employee succeeded in wasting five good months of these boys' lives. It's painful and very sad. There are more people in prison who have even spent years awaiting trial and with no means of securing legal aid.
