Lynch was accused of murdering her husband Farouk Razack in 2007. When contacted, officials from the DPP’s office confirmed that the case is not likely to be re-opened, unless there is new evidence found by the police.

iNews has been informed if there is any move on the part of the DPP to reopen the case against Lynch it will have to be hinged on the report that has to be submitted to the office from the prosecutor in the case.

Meanwhile, during an interview with iNews, one of the lawyers for Lynch, Latchmi Rahamat said any attempt by the police or the office of the DPP to reopen the case against Lynch will be met with much resistance through the High Court.

According to her, should the case be re-opened, it will be an act of abuse of power and will be challenged in the High Court.
