R v RN


Hannah represented a man charged with assault of an emergency worker.


In police body worn video filmed in the aftermath of the incident the defendant had accepted having pushed the police. At trial Hannah cross examined multiple police officers about their failure to activate their body worn video cameras at an early stage. The Defendant gave evidence about the police having used excessive force on them, and that all force he had used was in self-defence.

The jury found that the case against the Defendant was not proven and acquitted him.

Hannah was instructed by Christine Thompson of Waterfords Solicitors
