Oliver Kirk was instructed by Richard Graham of Graham and Co to represent a Polish national charged in connection with an alleged £2 million money-laundering operation involving the alleged use of a network of Bitcoin ATMs by criminals to launder the proceeds of their crimes.
The cash deposited into the machines was subsequently deposited into the bank accounts of others before being transferred abroad in an effort to avoid detection by the authorities.
After a trial at the Canterbury Crown Court lasting over 3 weeks, Oliver's client was acquitted of the charge.
