We didn't back Gorstew appeal

Published:Tuesday | June 2, 2015 | 12:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

We refer to an article in The Gleaner of Wednesday, April 29, 2015 captioned 'Court reaffirms constitutional bar against not-guilty appeals' and subcaptioned 'Says Gorstew made a back-door attempt'.

The first paragraph of the article conveys to the readers that the prosecutors in the case of R vs Patrick Lynch, Jeffrey Pyne, and Catherine Barber had brought this judicial review action, the subject matter of the article.

As members of the prosecution team, we wish to clarify the matter by stating that we did not approve of or participate in the judicial action.
