He appeared today before Nottingham Magistrates’ Court charged with a number of offences.

These are:

  • Conspiracy to sell/transfer a prohibited weapon/ammunition
  • Conspire to supply a class A drug
  • Conspire to conceal/disguise/convert/transfer/remove criminal property

All offences are alleged to have taken place between 31 July 2017 and 11 March 2019.

He will next appear before a judge sitting at the Crown Court in Nottingham, on 5 August 2020.

DCI Rich Bull, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We thank the UAE authorities for their assistance and co-operation in this matter.

“He has appeared in court today and has now been remanded into custody to await trial.”

He added as the case involving Mr Moran was now active there must be no reporting or commentary about this case, either in the mainstream media or on social media, as this may jeopardise any future court proceedings.
