After Supreme Court Ordered Retrial – Man Convicted of Manslaughter

Ameen Jogee, who was ordered to be retried for the murder of an ex-policeman, has been convicted of manslaughter.

In 2012 Jogee was jailed for life with a minimum of 20 years under the “joint enterprise” law after the death of ex-policeman Paul Fyfe in June 2011. At that trial Jogee was sentenced under the legislation which treated the accomplice as the same as the person who committed the deadly act, then 25-year-old Mohammed Hirsi.  However, the Supreme Court ordered that Jogee be retried  after ruling the law on joint enterprise had been  interpreted incorrectly for 30 years.

Following a two-week retrial at Nottingham Crown Court, jurors deliberated for more than 13 hours before clearing Jogee of murder. However, the seven men and five women decided that he was guilty of manslaughter.

Jogee will be re-sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court on September 12.
