The Director of Public Prosecutions Roger Gaspard, S.C defends the decision of his office to go to trial in the Vindra Naipaul-Coolman murder and kidnapping.

After more than 2 years, a jury returned a not guilty verdict for 8 of 10 accused men on Tuesday.

Defense attorneys are critical of the decision, saying there was insufficient evidence to prosecute the case and its collapse was inevitable.

Here's some of what the DPP said outside the High Court on Thursday.
