Our thanks to Jim, a Jersey resident, for this. The end of the piece:
Following the verdict, Mr Lyons released a statement criticising Jersey’s legal system as there had been: “…huge failings in the administration of this case by the States of Jersey Police and the Jersey Crown Prosecution. Failings that should be addressed by the Attorney General in a reassessment of the administration of all cases of this nature. But I suspect they won’t. The Jersey legal system is self-serving from top to bottom and will treat it as normal business for a system that has, or is fast losing its way in the administration of justice.
“I am financially out of pocket and I lost a job due to the failings of a system that we are supposed to trust and rely on,” he added. “It’s not so much ‘innocent until proven guilty.’ My experience in this case has definitely been ‘guilty until proven innocent.”
