Quashing Pending Historical Cases

There are a number of people who migrated from India over the last third of a century due to their safety or security concerns. A number of these people continue to face historical criminal trials in Indian courts for offences that are alleged to have been committed during their presence in India, or even later.

In a number of these cases, the Indian courts have made ex-parte orders against these defendants in their absence, or even declared them Proclaimed Offenders, thereby restricting their ability to return to India.

We can represent you in Indian courts and apply to the courts to quash the prosecutions and withdraw the adverse orders made in your absence.

If you are ready to face trial, we can represent you and make applications to court to allow you to go to India without the prospect of arrest or detention for this purpose.
