Given that the re-trial is a bench trial before the same judge (Lynn Hughes) who overturned the jury's guilty verdicts the first time around, I would expect Barry to be acquitted. I find it very hard to believe that this judge, whose actions in the first trial were suspiciously bizarre and incompetent, will find Bary guilty, regardless of the evidence.

I am amazed that Hughes is being allowed to preside over the re-trial. I have no confidence in his ability to adjudicate this matter professionally or impartially.

I personally think Yank will go down this time.Once he knows he is going to jail he will sing very loudly. All crimms he knows or has done deals with loose sleep.

Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
David Marchant
As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
