Justin Jarmola appears in ten million pound fraud
Justin Jarmola recently represented an individual during a four-week trial in the Crown Court at Warwick. The case, a private prosecution brought by the Premier League, is thought to be the biggest pay-television piracy case heard in the jurisdiction.
The individual was one of three Defendants, charged with conspiring to defraud the broadcasters of pay-television services, such as Sky and BT, between 2008 and 2018.
The case centred around a business that sold subscription television packages to pubs and bars nationwide. The packages enabled the premises to show an array of sporting matches that were often not available to watch within the United Kingdom, such as 3pm games in the Premier League.
The fraud was estimated to have caused a loss to broadcasters of over ten million pounds.
The case has received national press coverage.
Justin was led by Ben Hargreaves of Carmelite Chambers.
Justin was instructed by financial crime specialist Ben Henry, of Jonas Roy Bloom Solicitors.
