Art dealer Peter Gant

Art dealer Peter Stanley Gant and art conservator Mohamed Aman Siddique were found guilty by a jury of forging and selling Brett Whiteley paintings to the value of $3.6 million in May 2016. But last month -- in an extraordinary reversal of fortunes -- the pair’s convictions were quashed on appeal, when the Crown conceded that the jury’s verdict was likely to be "unsafe", bringing to an end a fascinating and episodic courtroom drama.
