CPS drops tax fraud charges against Corker Binning client Matthew Cahill
Tax charges against former Sidley Austin partner, Matthew Cahill, have been dropped.
Cahill had been accused by the CPS last year of conspiring to cheat the public revenue following an investigation by HMRC into a company called Zeus Partners.
The charges against Cahill were dropped after the CPS admitted “there was a fundamental failure of the disclosure process prior to dismissal.” It added: “There were failures to follow some reasonable lines of inquiry during the course of the investigation.”
Cahill was represented by Corker Binning partner David Corker, who said: “The admission of the CPS that they brought charges before the investigation was complete was contrary to the rule of law and led to unnecessary suffering and personal losses for Matthew and his family.”
