"Lawyer Denies Perverting Course Of Justice"

Justin Michel

A JERSEY lawyer has denied helping his accountant father in a multi-million-pound fraud to stop the family’s wealth being confiscated.

Advocate Justin Peter Michel is on trial in the Royal Court accused of perverting the course of justice by helping Peter Michel cover up his wealth in a bid to stop it being taken away by the authorities.
Following the Island’s most complex money-laundering investigation ever, Peter Michel was jailed for six years for a catalogue of offences and had just short of £10 million confiscated.

Giving evidence before the Assize jury of four women and eight men on Wednesday, his son Justin, of Trinity, said he had never even spoken to his father about the issue of confiscation let alone colluded with him.
