Myles Litchmore-Dunbar has been cleared of the fatal stabbing of Tyrell Matthews-Burton, from Leyton, east London.
Tyrell Matthews-Burton was killed on his 19th birthday during a brawl between nearly 30 people in Malia on the island of Crete on July 22, 2013.
During the fight, Mr Matthews-Burton was held down on a road in Malia and stabbed in the back and chest.
An ambulance arrived but the teenager, of Leyton, east London, died while being taken to hospital.
Witnesses claimed to have seen Mr Litchmore-Dunbar leaving the scene with blood on his shirt.
However, he maintained that he was trying to break up the fight, which involved some of the friends he was on holiday with.
He had spent a year remanded in a jail near Athens until the end of his trial yesterday – which saw him cleared of the murder charge.
Following the verdict, Mr Litchmore-Dunbar said: “I am happy that after some 16 months I have finally received justice, but I am reminded that justice still needs to be served for the family of Tyrell.
“The past 16 months have been a horrific experience for me which will live with me for the rest of my life. Today there have been no winners, only confirmation that I was not involved in the death of Tyrell, neither did I buy or possess a knife. Continue Reading….
I always believed that they arrested and charged the wrong man.
The authorities now need to drag in and question his so-called “friends” again.
Rest In Peace Tyrell Matthews-Burton.
