Lawyers claim they have new evidence which points to the real murderers in Michaela case
Defence team may make information public on Monday amid talk of retrial
The lawyers who got the Michaela McAreavey suspects off a murder charge say they have information that can identify the real killers – and they may make it public on Monday.
In a sensational new twist to the story, the lawyers have made the claim just hours after Michaela’s devastated husband John returned home from the Mauritius trial.
The Irish Sun reports that the two lawyers who represented hotel workers Avinash Treebhoowoon and Sandip Moneea are ready to present their new evidence.
The paper reports that lawyers Sanjeev Teeluckdharry and Rama Valayden will raise the issue of fresh DNA swabs and give cops their theory of what happened.
Teeluckdharry told the Irish Sun: “We have new information. It concerns a police investigation.
“We have a lot of things to say and it is premature to say it now.”
In a separate twist, the two men acquitted of the murder charge on Friday may be retried according to the Director of Public Prosecutions in Mauritius.
DPP Satyajit Boolell has hinted that there may be a retrial but only if new evidence comes to light.
He said: “If we have new evidence then I’m not discarding the possibility of a new trial.”
Irish legal experts are doubtful on the subject of another trial however.
Criminal barrister Paul Anthony McDermott told the Irish Sun: “Yes, if you find some dramatic new evidence you can put someone on trial again.
“But given the bathwater removed most of the DNA, and that police did not collect all samples properly, the public in Mauritius would view any new prosecution with suspicion.”
