L-R: Vikash Persaud, Osafo Douglas and Rafael Haniff during their first court arraignment in 2018

The bandits fled the scene and Swamy and Rawle were rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where Swamy was pronounced dead on arrival.

The men were represented by attorneys Madam Kissoon, Kezia Williams, Dexter Todd, Jevon Cox and Tracy Marks

The attorneys had submitted that the defence had no case to answer since the prosecutor failed to establish a case against their clients.

Justice Singh  agreed with the no-case submission of the defence and directed the jury to return a formal verdict of not guilty.

Dead : Christopher Swamy

The Judge criticised the police investigation as “very poor” and noted that some of the evidence should not have even advanced past the preliminary inquiry stage.

The News Room was made to understand that Rajkumar Singh will remain in custody since he has another murder case in relation to the fatal stabbing of another inmate last year while on remand at the Lusignan Prison.
