Fraud and Crime Case Study

Dass represented one of the defendants in the six handed prosecution of the founders and associates of the “Confidential Access” website.

The case concerned the alleged use of the website to facilitate the sale of false identity documents that were used to commit fraud and crime. The offences  were being investigated by the Metropolitan Police anti-terrorism unit. In a joint operation with the Hong Kong Organised Crime Team, the Confidential Access website was temporarily shut down and the servers and business records seized. The website subsequently reopened in another county and the authorities entered into an ongoing battle across several jurisdictions to force the website to close down.

The case required our ability to understand  the difficulties involved in dealing with international and cross-jurisdictional issues surrounding internet free trade and international payment systems.
