Kitan Ososami secures acquittals in drugs case.

14 Mar 2024

Kitan Ososami’s client was charged with two counts of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply (heroin and cocaine).

He was seen by the police in a suspected drug deal but not arrested because urgent medical attention was required. After leaving the city, he was arrested many months after and brought back to London for an interview.
Later in proceedings, he raised the s.45 Modern Slavery Act 2015 defence and provided, what he believed to be, the name of his exploiter.

In cross-examination by Kitan, the OIC accepted that police intelligence confirmed the existence of a drug line with the same name in the area where he was stopped.

The jury unanimously acquitted Kitan’s client of both counts.

Instructed by Patricia Gaskin of Powell Spencer & Partners.
