Ryan Wilson was freed of murder last week in the Home Circuit Court after it was revealed that he was in custody at the Constant Spring Police station at the time of the alleged crime.
Wilson was jointly charged with four others in relation with the 2005 murder of HIV/AIDS activist Lenford 'Steve' Harvey.
She further says having someone in custody almost nine years for a crime he did not commit is a gross violation of his Constitutional rights.
She says it’s not enough for the State to compensate him for the terrible ordeal, but those who did not do their jobs must be held accountable.
Attorney-at-law Ernest Davis, who is representing Wilson, says his client will be filing a lawsuit seeking damages against the Government.
Steve Harvey's killing has resulted in a far-reaching public outcry against the government of Jamaica, which has been accused of ignoring violence against homosexuals.
Several organizations, including the United Nations have demanded a thorough investigation of the homicide.
In March 2006, four people were charged with the killing.
It was in that same year he was selected as LACCASO's (Latin America and Caribbean Council of AIDS Service Organizations) project coordinator for Jamaica and was about to launch into bigger an better things.
A Life cut short.
His work with the MSM population was EXEMPLARY (yet to be duplicated) I had the pleasure of working with him while he was a member of the GLABCOM, gay lesbian, bisexual community steering committee arm of Jamaica AIDS Support for Life, JASL in the late nineties through to his death.
The pic above depicting a happier moment of him, "BIG NOSE" as some would tease him, he never liked it lol.
We Miss You Boi!!!
October 14, 2011 Update As for the political saga that ensued he would have lived for it and also the upcoming elections constitutionally due in 2012 he would have sided with his favourite party the Peoples National Party PNP who are now in administration and who also still enjoy most of the LGBT support despite siding with government on the invented gay marriage debate as a side bar to the Charter of Rights Debate in 2008/9.
Another one of our strong voices taken out unjustly.
