Ecky Tiwana defends in Taxi Driver case

Thu, 05 Dec 2013

Three men and a seventeen-year-old boy all denied charges relating to sexual activity with underage girls at Teeside Crown Court.

One of the men, Shakil Munir, 32, Middlesborough, denies four charges of sexual activity with a child and one of abducting a child.

His barrister, Eckwall Tiwana, said, “He acted badly, stupidly, but not criminally”. He alleged that the girl’s mother was “controlling these kids” and that the evidence from the girls was “unreliable”.

Yesterday, 4th December, the jury found Munir guilty of all four charges.
