(CNS): The appeal court has overturned the convictions of four out of five men convicted of Cayman’s largest ever bank robbery.The higher court ordered a retrial in the case agaisnt David Tamasa, Rennie Cole, Andre Burton and George Mignot for their part in the 2012 Cayman National Bank case so the men remain in custody for the time being. The conviction of a fifth man in the daylight bank heist – Ryan Edwards, however, was upheld. The appeal court quashed the convictions not as a result of the controversial evidence given by the crown’s lead witness and ‘supergrass’ Marlon Dillon but because of a technical irregularity.
