R v Mohammed Isaq and Haslington Hall Ltd
Joseph Hart prosecuted in the case which resulted one of the longest sentences imposed under the Fire Safety Order. It was significant in many respects, both in terms of the degree of culpability, the extent of commercial involvement of the Defendants and the unsuccessful legal challenges to the Prosecution. It represents a successful six-year long enforcement regime for Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service. Counsel and solicitors were involved from the earliest stage to advise in this difficult case.
Counsel was instructed by Warren Spencer of Blackhurst Budd, a leading fire safety specialist.
